BOOK - Historic St Andrews
By Ronald Rees
Pubished by Nimbus Publishing, Halifax, 2004

Softcover... 18.95 (C$)

The picturesque town of St Andrews, New Brunswick nestles on a peninsula. within the. protected waters of passamaquoddy Bay at the point where It meets the St Croix River.

In the distance lies the Bay of Fundy. Settled by Loyalists from Maine more than two centuries ago, St Andrews was first an important shipbuilding, fishing, and mercantile centre, then, after these traditional industries had faded, a fashionable resort.

With photographs chosen almost entirely from the collection of the Charlotte County Archives, author Ronald Rees celebrates this rich past and documents the ingenuity and spirit of the town as it weathered the changes of the twentieth century.

From landscapes and streetscapes to colourful public events and charming houses and hotels, Historic St Andrews portrays a place filled with unforgettable stories and enduring character, a place alive with history.
