Description

Grand Manan Island is part of an archipelago of islands at the mouth of the Bay of Fundy. Basaltic cliffs and underwater ledges contributed to the area around the island becoming famous for its shipwrecks, but there is much more to the island's story. Historic Grand Manan catalogues with historic images and detailed captions the island's geology and geography, lighthouses and landmarks, fishing industry, transportation, schools, churches, businesses and homes, people and community life, and the smaller Wood Island. From the first visits of Norse explorers around 1000 ad, to the early 1950s when the island's roads were being paved for the first time, Grand Manan's history is perfectly captured here.
