1989, ISBN: 9780864924568

ID: 9780864924568

Summertime in late 19th-century St. Andrews was more than a vacation by the sea, it was a lifestyle. "Discovered" by a wealthy few who felt the need for a seaside retreat, the town soon became a haven for the elite seeking respite from the heat of the sweltering cities throughout North America. Luxurious hotels such as the Algonquin, clean air and outstanding resort facilities attracted minor and major nobility, stars of stage and screen, and politicians such as the Fathers of Summertime in late 19th-century St. Andrews was more than a vacation by the sea, it was a lifestyle. "Discovered" by a wealthy few who felt the need for a seaside retreat, the town soon became a haven for the elite seeking respite from the heat of the sweltering cities throughout North America. Luxurious hotels such as the Algonquin, clean air and outstanding resort facilities attracted minor and major nobility, stars of stage and screen, and politicians such as the Fathers of Confederation Sir Leonard Tilly and Sir Charles Tupper, who were joined by the glitterati and scions of "old money" from Canada, the United States and beyond. Originally published as No Hay Fever and a Railway in 1989, this new edition of Willa Walker's classic volume draws upon archival records and the author's own memories as she lovingly recalls the exceptional little town and its permanent and summertime residents. With an eye for detail, she describes many of the cottages and homes and the summer society that was established at this quaint seaside community. Updated by her sons Giles, David and Julian, this new volume includes all of Mrs. Walker's original stories, including delightful tales about some of the eccentricities of the summer residents as well as up-to-date information on many of the elegant summer homes.

Near the end of the 19th century, the wealthy of Montreal, Boston, and New York ´´discovered´´ the sublime beauty of St. Andrews. The Algonquin and other luxurious hotels sprang up to serve these magnates and celebrities, and their ´´cottages´´ are among the most elaborate in eastern North America. Summers in St. Andrews is the deliciously anecdotal story of the rich, famous, and powerful who made St. Andrews one of Canada´s poshest resort towns. The golden age ended with the Second World War, but the cottages are still enjoyed by their eminent owners. Recalling the glory days, Summers in St. Andrews describes 35 of the cottages in loving detail. The Toronto Star called the book, first published as No Hay Fever and a Railway, ´´unique and spirited,´´ and The Montreal Gazette pronounced it ´´delightful,´´ just like the summers it describes.
