Summary, etc.:
From the Introduction: Here are 30 buildings and 30 tales. They overlap, intertwine, nearly coalesce, like some great epic novel not quite ready to jell. Here are wars, hurricanes, pestilence, ghosts, pirates, politics, death, romance, a massacre, earthquake, fire, and the indomitable human spirit. Walk these streets, savor these tales. They are arranged for your convenience, a tour begining and ending on Bay Street, a thoroughfare full flowing with the tide of life and time.
