BOOK - Historic Annapolis Royal, Images of our Past
By Ian Lawrence
Published by Nimbus Publishing, Halifax, 2002

Softcover... 19.95 (C$)

Annapolis Royal, one of Nova Scotia's most historic towns, is the oldest permanent European settlement in North America north of Florida.

First called Port Royal by Samuel de Champlain, it was the administrative and military centre of Acadie until its final capture by the British in 1710. Renamed in honour of Queen Anne, this spectacular little town served as Nova Scotia's capital until the founding of Halifax in 1749.

This visually evocative and informative book traces the history of Annapolis Royal through its architecture, streetscapes, and industries, its public, military, and domestic life. Fort Anne, Canada's first historic park, adds to the town's visual charm, as does the fact that many of the town's historic buildings - including some of the oldest framed buildings in the country - are still standing. Also treated in images and text are the surrounding villages of Granville, Lequille, and Bear River, and of course, the replica of the 1605 Habitation of de Monts and Champlain.

The first four chapters of Historic Annapolis Royal-The Fort, The Lower Town, The Upper Town, and The Waterfront-have been organized to facilitate an on-site exploration of the town's beautiful natural setting, its historic buildings, and the attributes that make it a well-loved tourist destination.

About the author:
    A life-long resident of Annapolis Royal, Ian Lawrence is secretary-treasurer of the Historic Restoration Sociery of Annapolis Counry, and chair of its archives and genealogical commiaees. Ian is the manager of the local boat yard [2002].
