Excerpt from St. John, New Brunswick, Canada, 1914: The City of the Loyalists
King Square (which in any other town would be called a Park) is that level plot situated at the head of King Street, and extending to Sydney Street. In the Square the visitor finds a monument erected to the memory of Sir S. L. T illey, twice Lieutenant Governor Of New Brunswick, and at one time Finance Minister Of Canada. The statue is the work of Philippe Hebert, the Canadian sculptor. There is also a statue to Fred. Young, a youth who, during a wild storm, lost his life in Courtenay Bay in a fruitless effort to save a boy from drowning. There has also recently been erected in this Square a new bandstand, and a number Of band concerts will be held during the summer months. The stone building facing the Young monument is the Court House behind which are the Gaol and Police Station.
The new Courtenay Bay Harbor improvements are well worthy of inspection.
A Tablet to the first publishers in New Brunswick has been placed on one of the pillars of the building opposite the Bank Of Nova Scotia, Prince Wm. Street, the site of their printing office, as follows.
