The Maritime Provinces: A Handbook for Travellers

James R. Osgood and Company

Regular price $125.00 Sale

A guide to the Maritimes in the second half of the 19th century, including cities, coasts, islands and attractions from Labrador to Montreal. It's gratifying to know that "The people of the Provinces are generally courteous, and are willing to answer any civilly put questions" (page 10). The bad news - "The Hotels of the Maritime Provinces are far behind the age" (page 7). Fascinating info on how to plan one's tour, required money and travelling expenses, railways and steamboats, language, climate, fishing. Indexes and 24 pages of advertising at rear.
