A volume in the Images of Our Past series. "Annapolis Royal, one of Nova Scotia's most historic towns, is the oldest permanent European settlement in North America north of Florida. First called Port Royal by Samuel de Champlain, it was the administrative and military centre of Acadie until its final capture by the British in 1710. Renamed in honour of Queen Anne, this spectacular little town served as Nova Scotia's capital until the founding of Halifax in 1749. This visually evocative and informative book traces the history of Annapolis Royal through its architecture, streetscapes, and industries, its public, military, and domestic life.Fort Anne, Canada's first historic park, adds to the town's visual charm, as does the fact that many of the town's historic buildigns -- including some of the oldest framed buildings in the country -- are still standing. Also treatest in images and text are the surrounding villages of Granville, Lequille, and Bear River, and of course, the replica of the 1605 Habitation of de Monts and Champlain." - from rear.
