Historic Bathurst offers an intimate look at life as it once was in this northern New Brunswick town. Summoning up its early days with an abundance of archival images, this book presents Bathurst’s past as home of salmon runs, a bountiful lumbering business, and as an important trading post along the remote Bay of Chaleur and documents the changes brought by the early twentieth century. Authur A.J. McCarthy has depicted, in images and words, the history of Bathurst’s people, the great rivers of the region, its streetscapes, bridges, and buildings, as well as its industries such as mining, the pulp mills, and the railway.With over one hundred images, this book is a one-of-a-kind keepsake, bringing back the people, history, and spirit of Bathurst.
