Description

Sprinkled across the province's waterways, New Brunswick's many covered bridges have long been a subject of history and pride. In New Brunswick's Covered Bridges, Brian Atkinson takes us on a photographic tour of these wooden masterpieces, from the Hartland Bridge, the longest covered bridge in the world, to smaller bridges such as the Maxwell Crossing Bridge.

Atkinson's delightful photos capture different sizes, shapes, and styles of these magnificent structures, while short write-ups provide history and highway directions. With these bridges slowly succumbing to decay, natural disasters, and even arson, New Brunswick's Covered Bridges is an invaluable photographic collection of a bygone era.
