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.
