Description

In this book John Leroux and Thaddeus Holownia explore the rich architectural heritage of St. Andrews, New Brunswick. From the site of the first attempt at permanent European-based architecture in Canada on St. Croix Island in 1604 to the rational grid of streets developed upon the arrival of the United Empire Loyalists in the 1780s, from modest wooden Cape Cod cottages and mercantile buildings to refined Georgian manors and grand Shingle Style summer homes, St Andrews exhibits an impressive diversity of styles, building materials and techniques. St. Andrews Architecture attempts to articulate the social history of this town, demonstrating how architecture can unmistakably expresses the spirit of a place and of the people who built it.
