A Snapshot of St. James, Dartmouth in 1837

Normally I don’t spend much time reading through minutes unless I have to but I stumbled across an interesting book the other day.

The following is a report from St. Andrew’s Kirk Badminton Club circa 1915 (later became part of St. Andrew’s and St. David’s United Church in Saint John, NB).
