Window on the World: The Rivers of New Brunswick

New Brunswick Museum

A steam whistle blows as a tug chugs along pulling a raft of timber. A sailboat drifts by lazily, while two men in a birch bark canoe dip their paddles in the water. A fisherman casts his line out with a snap, barely audible against the buzz of a motorboat in the distance. A salmon leaps up with a splash. On the shore, meanwhile, an artist captures the moment on canvas. The St. John River of the late 19th century was a hive of activity.
