  • [194-?]

This item is a scrapbook by Ann (Haley) Berman which has a detailed map of New Brunswick on the cover and contains cut-outs from newspapers and magazines.

Some notable cut-outs include articles on Dochet, or St. Croix, Island, a story about a two-storey wooden frame house located in St. George that was believed to have been built in the early 1800s burning down, a story about the removal of customs officers from the bridge at Upper Mills New Brunswick which left the border with Maine unguarded, a story about the network of light and fog stations in the Bay of Fundy and their keepers, a meeting of the Home and School Association on Campobello, the state of fishing in Blacks Harbour and other areas of the Bay of Fundy, and an article about the appearance of a mysterious moose carcass with no obvious signs of death near St. George. Other cut-outs include stories from the city of Saint John’s history, some of New Brunswick’s earliest settlers, famous families and individuals such as Lord Beaverbrook or Charles Saint Etienne de La Tour, New Brunswick hospitals and the Red Cross, hunting and fishing, and global events like post World War II talks between Britain, the U. S. and Russia.

She never was a lady

  • CA MNBM ID1753
  • Item
  • 1953

This is the script of the radio play "She Never was a Lady" about the sailing ship "Marco Polo". The "Marco Polo" was constructed in Saint John, New Brunswick, by James Smith. It was purchased by James Barnes of Black Ball Line of Australian packets. On its first run to Australia in 1852, Captain James Forbes boasted that he would have the ship back on the Mersey within 6 months, which was an unheard of feat in those days. Captain Forbes arrived back in Liverpool in 5 months and 21 days. Over the years, the "Marco Polo" routinely kept very fast times. The ship was lost in 1883 and off Cavendish, Prince Edward Island.
