      I see some on occasion. I work at a university, and while not a hot bed of foreign students, every once and a while I see something nifty. There is currently a diesel Pajero on Jamaican plates and a High Lux crew cab on Costa Rican plates on campus. It is not too uncommon to see Euro RV's on the interstate headed to clog up the roads at national parks.

      Simply an amazing picture. Looking at these vintage photos really makes you see how different times are now. I always wonder what it would be like growing up in a different generation.

      First "Bookmobile", Prince-Edward-Island, ca. 1933



      From 1933-1936, Prince Edward Island was the site of a demonstration project to establish a regional library system, funded by the Carnegie Corporation of New York. $60,000 US was donated to hire staff, purchase books and materials, in an effort to entice communities to commit to reading and support a library building in their area.

      Charlottetown, PEI 1950's



      Barrington St., Halifax, NS 1960
