Has spring sprung in Saint John, New Brunswick?

Saint John has a wealth of historical and heritage residences throughout the city. On every corner of Saint John stands an architectural marvel in need of attention, restoration and protection from the elements.

There are a few addresses that include a 1/2…not sure exactly what this means?

It takes a whole lot of people to run a city. On the left is Craig, he has been a crosswalk attendant for seven years.

Business is still good, even with the recession.

Lori is the queen of multi-tasking. She runs the counter, cash register and cooks!

Since established in 1855, the business of W.H. Hayward and his brother-in-law O.H. Warwick has grown and prospered. Located initially on Prince William Street near to the noble post office one can see from the picture on the left the name “W.H. Hayward”. The company relocated from Prince William after the great fire of ’77 to new spacious premises on Princess Street. Today, the owners, fifth generation of the Hayward family obtain the finest of English and imported China gifts and tableware in the tradition of the founder.
