Maryville, Nova Scotia, VARIOUS SHOTS of a cotton mill built in 1883 by Alexander Gibson that is now no longer in use. Behind the building, we see a platform and a railroad, the latter of which has also been abandoned. The camera lingers on the architectural details of the building and we still see the pole with its Canada Street and Bridge Street signs, the intersection where the mill was built, and also a street lined with brick houses next to the mill. A man is washing the inside of his shop window and children are playing in the schoolyard of the Alexander Gibson Memorial School, whose façade can clearly be seen.
