ROY, Rob. Saint John. [Foreword by Gary Hughes. Introduction by Peter J. Larocque]. (Halifax, NS) : Nimbus Publishing Ltd., (2013). First Printing. Pp. (3),iv-ix,(1),1-78. Fully illustrated in colour. Oblong 8vo, red cloth, gilt lettering to spine. "At the mouth of the St. John River sits New Brunswick's largest city. Once a summer gathering ploace for the native Wolastoqiyik (Maliseet), this beautiful spot on the Bay of Fundy was first settled by Europeans in the seventeenth century, and today people from all corners of the globe are drawn to the city of Saint John. The long history of this community is present in every aspect of Saint John life -- as is the promiseof a dynamic future. Downtown, the clean lines of modern office buildings are a perfect bnackdrop to intricate Victorian structures; at the harbour, an old industrial waterfront is making way for a stunning pedestrian path and entertainment complex. One of New Brunswick's finest photographers, Rob Roy has once again turned his lens to the place he calls home. His exquisite photographs lead us through the streets of Saint John, inviting us to look more closely at the elegant homes, the sparkling harbour. He captures thelife of the city as well as its charm -- families play at the Fisher Lakes , a glittering cruise ship pulls out of the harbour, and citizens and tourists alike stroll down the Harbour Passage parkway." - from the dustjacket.
