Cummins devotes most of its opening pages to a detailing of the Island’s contribution to the First World War or “European War”. This event had forever changed many communities on the Island.
More positively, new industries such as silver fox farming are also highlighted as are the continuing growth of the potato and lobster industries which would both become increasingly important in the 20th century.
