Fredericton And Its People

  Author:   Ted Jones    
  Publisher:  Nimbus Publishing

Fredericton, New Brunswick’s capital, is a city known by many names. Because of its beautiful churches it is often referred to as the celestial city, and for its majestic trees it has been described as the city of stately elms. To many citizens who have passed trough its buildings and across it streets over the year, this beautiful city is known simply as “home.” Fredericton and Its People focuses on the lives of these citizens-their enterprises and events, their homes and hobbies-between the early 1800s and World War Two. Drawn from the rich resources for the Provincial Archives of New Brunswick and city’s most famous photographers, vivid historical photos capture history as it happened, from royal visits and disaster to military events and community celebrations. Detailed captions complement the photo with historical context.
