Lunenburg is one of Nova Scotia's most famous and picturesque towns. With its steep streets leading up from the harbour, lined with bright, distinctive heritage buildings built during its fishing and shipbuilding heyday, the town has been recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
In this full-colour book, historian and heritage expert Brian Cuthbertson takes his readers on a tour of the old town, examining the charm of its landmark buildings such as the Lunenburg Academy, and the eclectic blend of old and new on its iconic waterfront. Cuthbertson outlines the town's history, from its founding in 1753 by a group of German Lutherans and French-speaking Calvinists, chiefly farmers and tradesmen. He follows the course of economic growth in the fisheries, including the famous Grand Banks fishery and the building of the fastest, most famous and beautiful working schooner of them all, Bluenose. He tracks the town's enduring traditions and continuing prosperity today.
Illustrated with dozens of full-colour photographs and historical visuals, Lunenburg: Then and Now is an exciting tour of one of Canada's most distinctive and fascinating towns.
