The Official Guide provides both a nice concise history of the original establishment of Pembroke, complete with many photographs of the original settlers but it goes on to give a summary of virtually all the public and private institutions and organizations contemporary to the celebration. The Nexus is a typical year book, written by the students for the students and mentioning the names of as many of them as was possible. There are also numerous photographs of individuals, sports teams and some nice composite photographs of the teaching staff.
As well as providing an excellent "snap shot" of the town these documents will be of great use to anyone researching ancestors because of the large number of individuals who are named either for their involvement in local affairs or for their part in the celebration. Both of the major documents are liberally "laced" with advertising for local businesses. A rare and valuable insight into this important manufacturing town on one of Upper Canada's primary pioneer routes.
