This series of silkscreen illustrations celebrate some of Uptown Saint John’s most recognizable landmarks—both past and present. Whether you’ve been a Johnner your whole life or are new in town, you’re likely to recognize most, if not all, of these sights. The series includes Trinity Church, the King’s Square Bandstand, Saint John’s Cenotaph, the Loyalist Burial Ground Beaver Fountain, the now demolished Gothic Arches Church, and finally Tuck’s home, the Old Post Office Building. Whether you collect all six or just one, the hope is that these prints will be reminders of the art, architecture, and character that make Saint John so special.
