Photographer's Note

Caraquet is a town of New-Brunswick. It is North of the province and situated in front of a magnificent breath-taking scenery: the Bay of Caraquet, which turns into the Bay of Chaleurs (Atlantic Ocean).

The name Caraquet is of Micmac origin, meaning "the meeting of two rivers".



After the arrival of the first Europeans, in 1730, Caraquet really took root in 1758 when, headed by Alexis Landry, 34 Acadian families, victims of the 1755 deportation, established themselves right in the heart of the Sainte-Anne-du-Bocage sector.

Today, the Town of Caraquet has a population of around 4,440 people.

The bulding on the photograph is theater for performers.
