Tuesdays Treasures {24} - A Port Through Time

 Welcome to Tuesdays Treasures.  I started these posts as a way of sharing great books in honour of my friend in New Zealand who would arrive with the treasures she had unearthed at her weekly trip to the library!
There are so many wonderful books out there hiding on shelves so I invite you to blog about a book on your shelf, one you're reading or one you found at the library and add your post to Learning All the Time Favourite Resource Link Up

This week ...
A 10,000 year journey from trading post to modern seaport

I love the Through Time book series.  They are beautifully illustrated and lots of fun to look through. You could spend days on each page and still not see everything there is to see.  Each book picks one location and shows you how it develops from nothing to present day.  Some pages contain "cut away" images. The book finishes off with a brief historical look at shipping through the ages and world trade.

Other books available in the series are: A Farm through Time, A City through Time and A Street through Time.

What's your favourite history resource?



  1. Somehow I missed the fact that this was a series...we have borrowed A Street Through Time from the library before, and LOVED it! I will have to see if we can borrow the others in the series.
    Thank you!! And, thanks for linking up :)

    1. I have seen a Farm through Time and A city through time. The port through time is new to me.

      You are welcome. :)
