The book highlights the landmarks and historic sites of old St Johnís, architecture and historic buildings, the harbour, places of interest around the harbour and St Johnís, our seafaring heritage, marine life, the fishery, the oil and gas industry and the outlook for the future. The book is well illustrated with many good maps and contains some quirky facts.
