iSaturday-Edmundston, NB

 

The mill.

I’m in my hometown for a family funeral. After driving 7 1/2 hours to get here, I took a brisk walk over the hill in the middle of town and a bit further north to see the two houses I lived in as a child. The ‘featured photo’ in this post (also at the bottom) is of the four-plex I lived in until the age of eleven. The photo above shows the pulp mill from the top of 17th Avenue looking west.

The next two show the city from part way up Conway Street reading from left-the mill again-  but a wider angle

      Edmundston is probably the coldest part of New Brunswick and is in the snow shadow of the weather coming eastwards over the St. Lawrence River. Plus they had a storm about a week ago, and there are a lot of trees on the top of this hill which slow down the melt. It was a nice place to grow up.
