Description

"St. Andrews-by-the-Sea, N.B.: From Saint John the traveller starts for Montreal. Changing at McAdam Junction, about 85 miles distant, he can, after a short run, reach St.-Andrews-by-the-Sea, a pretty and very fashionable sea-shore resort, situated on Passamaquoddy Bay. The Algonquin Hotel -- one of the chain of luxurious Canadian Pacific hotels that span Canada from the Atlantic to Pacific -- is the centre of social life of the resort."
