The title of this entire virtual exhibit is taken from W.A. Letson's souvenir booklet, Lunenburg by the Sea: Views of Lunenburg Nova Scotia, published about 1896. A digitized version of the booklet (88 pp) is presented here for you to explore.
Letson, editor of the Lunenburg Argus newspaper, produced Lunenburg by the Sea to attract tourists and promote local business and industry. The booklet includes photos from Mahone Bay, Chester and Bridgewater as well, with general historical background, plus biographical information and photo portraits of various community leaders.
