From the early 1800s sailboat construction was a major occupation in many places around New Brunswick. Several other types of boats were also built in the province during that time. They included fishing boats and freighters. Boat building was one of New Brunswick's leading industries in the 19th century.This photo dated October 28, 1918, shows builders at work in the interior of a boat.
