Historic Saint John Streets

  Author:   David Goss, Harold Wright,  
  Publisher:  Nimbus Publishing

Neither the Crow’s Nest tavern nor the boundary between Saint John East and West exist today, but Crow’s Nest Lane and City Line still do. In this pioneering excavation of the largest city in New Brunswick, authors David Goss (Only in New Brunswick) and Harold E. Wright (East Saint John) illuminate many of the stories inspired by and responsible for the curious collection of street names in Saint John, New Brunswick, past and present.

Culled from interviews with current and former residents, archival and original research, and a dash of local lore, Historic Saint John Streets is both a historians’ reference and readers’ miscellany. Featuring an ambitious sampling of over 100 roads and archival images, representative streetscapes run the gamut from secret shortcuts, to back roads, to main throughways, and offer a valuable new perspective of the historically rich Maritime city.
