Ole Larsen’s Miramichi

  Author:   Michael Nowlan    
  Publisher:  Nimbus Publishing

This book uncovers remarkable images of New Brunswick’s Miramichi taken by photographer Olaf (Ole) Larsen who jumped ship in Newcastle after leaving his native Norway in the 1860s. As well as running his studio portrait business, Larson also documented dramatic scenes of logging along the Miramichi, the bustle of rivers ports, the area’s street celebrations, events, historic structures, and family homes.

Much of Larsen’s breathtaking photography has been left hidden in archives, out of the public view, or has been published with-out credit. This first-ever collection of his pictures reveals the diverse array of the area’s activities and people. It is an unrivalled look at the Miramichi of yesterday.
