Canada: Newfoundland & LabradorOrdinær pris 149,00 kr
Newfoundland, Britain’s first and oldest American colony, joined Canada somewhat reluctantly in 1949. It was re-named Newfoundland and Labrador some years later to reflect the political reality of a huge tract of land that was given to it. The province has blossomed into a treasured part of Canada and a touristic haven par excellence. The island portion is well known for its one east-west road, and St. John’s as the oldest city in the Americas north of the Caribbean. Access to the province is a tad difficult. One either takes a ferry from Nova Scotia, weather permitting, or flies in. There is now a road north from the eastern edges of road connections in Quebec north to Labrador City and east to Goose Bay, with a southerly stretch of 500kms to a seasonal ferry across the Strait of Belle Isle to a spot on the northern island coast, not far from L’Anse aux Meadows, the historic site of the first European Norse settlement in the New World, circa 1,000AD.
The map is double-sided, to reflect the importance of both portions of the province, and the island side includes insets of St. John’s and Conception Bay. It also includes the nearby French possession of St. Pierre et Miquelon, the only colony left for France after the British conquest of Quebec in 1759/60.
