Photographer's Note

Dusk settles on the St. John River in Fredericton, capital of the province of New Brunswick. The city was founded by Acadians originally in 1732 and known as St. Anne's Point, but had been occupied by French Acadians as early as 1692. The area came under British jurisdiction in 1758, after Louisburg was captured.

Fredericton became a busy centre only after the American Revolution, when some 2000 Loyalists of over 34,000 in 1783 fled from America to settle in the town, renamed Fredericton. In the distance is the old railway bridge, which is now solely a walking and cycling bridge on a trail circuit, as the railway is long since disused. Throughout New Brunswick and indeed North America there is a Rails to Trails movement which has seen thousands of kilometres of disused rail lines converted to walking and cycling paths.
