Discovered by a wealthy few who felt the need for a seaside retreat, the town soon became a haven for the elite seeking respite from the heat of the sweltering cities throughout North America.

Luxurious hotels such as the Algonquin, clean air and outstanding resort facilities attracted minor and major nobility, stars of stage and screen, and politicians such as the Fathers of Confederation Sir Leonard Tilly and Sir Charles Tupper, who were joined by the glitterati and scions of old money from Canada, the United States and beyond.Originally published as No Hay Fever and a Railway in 1989, this new edition of Willa Walkers classic volume draws upon archival records and the authors own memories as she lovingly recalls the exceptional little town and its permanent and summertime residents.With an eye for detail, she describes many of the cottages and homes and the summer society that was established at this quaint seaside community.

Updated by her sons Giles, David and Julian, this new volume includes all of Mrs. Walkers original stories, including delightful tales about some of the eccentricities of the summer residents as well as up-to-date information on many of the elegant summer homes.
