A Year to Remember: 1904 New Brunswick

Michael Pitblado and the New Brunswick Museum

The 20th century begins in an atmosphere of commemoration and celebration in many parts of Canada. Strong ties to Europe and the British Empire produce occasions for revelry and remembrance, such as Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee in 1897 and a Royal Visit in 1901. This festive mood extends to the New Brunswick summer celebrations of the 300th anniversary of the arrival in the New World of Pierre Du Gua de Monts and Samuel de Champlain in 1604. A time of commemoration and transformation, the year 1904 offers a unique glimpse into the intricacies of life in early 20th-century New Brunswick.
