BOOK - Historic Charlottetown, Images of our Past
By Julie V Watson
Published by Nimbus Publlishing, Halifax, 2007

Softcover... 21.95 (C$)

Proudly known as the "birthplace of Canada," Charlottetown has been a provincial capital since 1765. The town owes its distinguished history not only to the well-known role it played in Canadian Confederation, but also for its development as the commercial centre and chief port of Canada's smallest province, Prince Edward Island.

Historic CharLottetown brings history to life through historical blackand- white images and descriptions of the town's steady development up I to the end of the Second World Wjar. Award-winning author Julie Watson describes the careful town plan /that resulted in Charlottetown's grand public squares; the continual struggle to maintain crucial transportation links to the mainland; the rich cultural life that led to the town's connection with two of the nation's best-loved artistic figures, L. M. Montgomery and Robert Harris; and of course, Charlottetown's role as host of the first discussions on Canadian union in 1864. Charlottetown is truly one of the nation's historic provincial capitals.

Julie V Watson has more than twenty-one books and hundreds of magazine articles to her credit. In 2005, Julie was recognized by the Professional Writers' Association of Canada with the Lawrence Jackson Lifetime Achievement Award. She teaches workshops on writing and publishing, judges writing and book competitions, and is active at an executive level in writing associations and women in business organizations. She lives in Charlottetown with her husband, Jack.
