Historic Charlottetown by Julie V WatsonHistoric Charlottetown

 Images of our Past
              by Julie V. Watson

 

“We can only offer glimpses into the past, but strived to showcase the essence of the heart of what is my home town.” 

Proudly known as the “Birthplace of Canada,” Charlottetown  has been a provincial capital since 1765. 

The town owes its distinguished history not only to the well-known role it played in Canadian Confederation, but also for its development as the commercial centre and chief port of Canada’s smallest province, Prince Edward Island. 

Historic Charlottetown brings history to life through historical black-and-white images and descriptions of the town’s steady development up to the end of the Second World War.  Award- winning author Julie V. Watson describes the careful town plan that resulted in Charlottetown’s grand public squares; the continual struggle to maintain crucial transportation links to the mainland; the rich cultural life that led to the town’s connection with two of the nation’s best-loved artistic figures, L.M. Montgomery and Robert Harris; the impact of military and sporting endeavors, and of course, Charlottetown’s role as host of the first discussions on Canadian union in 1864.  Charlottetown is truly one of the nation’s historic provincial capitals.

Calling The Maritimes Home By Julie V WatsonCalling The Maritimes Home

Origins, Attitudes, Quirks and Curiosities

 

by Julie V. Watson

 

"There are two kinds of people.  Those who just pass through life and those who take time to stop, to savour, to create memories.  The latter are by far the richer." - Julie Watson

Canada’s Maritimes are a very special part of the world, fostering such affection in the people that live there that they refer to the rest of the world as “Away.”  From Anne of Green Gables to Ashley MacIsaac, from the Annapolis Valley to Peggy’s Cove, the Maritimes offer a rich variety of culture and history disproportionate to their small size and population.  And Maritimers, wherever they may roam, still think fondly of the Maritimes as home.  Filled with fascinating facts and unforgettable anecdotes, Calling the Maritimes Home is a tribute to this unique part of Canada.  The author revels in the region’s diversity of customs and traditions, its creative arts and cuisine, its many languages and lifestyles, in a manner that will delight both Maritimes and those from “Away”.
