At a time when most artists making bird's eye views were itinerant Americans making a business of their art, Duncan D. Currie was his own thing. A Wesleyan Methodist Minister, he was born in 1825 and spent much of his later life ministering in Moncton, Fredericton and Saint John.

He had a very fertile burst of creativity in 1888 and 1889 when he produced and published images of Buctouche, Dorchester, Londonderry, Lunenberg, Moncton, New Glasgow, Truro, Woodstock and Yarmouth. I particularly like the florid-but-sharp he used when rendering his maps' titles. 

A reproduction available at 16x12" or 24x18" on Epson Enhanced Matte 192 gsm paper printed with Epson UltraChrome XD2 archival ink. Sold in an open edition, unframed. Restored from this pubic domain image found in the Norman B. Leventhal Map & Education Center.
