This fascinating collection of photographs brings to life the dramatic and colourful history of Saint John West and its neighbours. Over two hundred images show how this area developed during the last century as the fishing, shipping, and rail centre of Saint John.
Together David Goss and Fred Miller guide us through the city's vibrant past: the events, industries, places, and people which have defined Saint John West over the decades. Images capture catastrophes such as the Waterfront Fire of 1931 and celebrations such as parades and festivals. Most of all, they preserve and honour the lives of the ordinary people of Saint John West: streetcar drivers, firemen, harbour workers, fishermen, store owners, tipplers, schoolchildren, and foundry workers, amongst many others.Authors: David Goss and Fred Miller
