Canada's History



This photograph, entitled “New Building, from King’s Square, 1965,” appears in the book The Lost City: Ian MacEachern’s Photograph­s of Saint John, by John Leroux (Goose Lane Editions, 176 pages, $35). The images made by MacEachern in the 1960s and early 1970s reveal Saint John, New Brunswick, as a hardscrabb­le city populated by remarkable people while undergoing significan­t physical and social transforma­tions. Leroux, an architect and art historian, selected dozens of black-and-white photograph­s that, he writes, tell something about “a Saint John that was tired but full of energy; decaying but full of life.”
