Title: History of Stanley Bridge: Hub of the Universe
Author(s): Francis Bolger, Helen MacEwen, Aline Reid, Marion Reid, Laurie Coles, Sarah Coles, Annie Douglas, Hilda Fyfe, Anita Gallant, Archibald MacEwen, Brendan Reid, Adelaide Weeks
Publisher: Stanley Bridge Community Historical Society. Stanley Bridge, PEI: 1997
Description: 506 pp. Quarto. Illustrated. Bound in green cloth with gilt titles on spine. Illustrated dust jacket. Green endpapers. Described as “a comprehensive history of Stanley Bridge, a small, picturesque village cradled at the junction of Stanley River and New London Bay. Called Fyfe’s Ferry until 1865, Stanley Bridge enjoyed the closely knit community life, the self-sufficiency and moderate prosperity that characterized so many Island communities from the mid-nineteenth to the mid-twentieth centuries.” The subtitle is a quote from the Selected Journals of L. M. Montgomery [Vol. I, Dec. 31, 1898, Pg. 230]. “There are two or three stores in Stanley and we have always gone there to buy household supplies. Stanley used to seem quite a town in my childish eyes.” Montgomery goes on to say as a child she thought the community “the hub of the universe…or of our solar system at the very least.”
