Canadian houses, etc. St George and St Andrew's, New Brunswick

This part of New Brunswick, the Bay of Fundy shore, was largely settled by Loyalists--aka Tories--coming up from New England during and after the American Revolution. The architectural bloodlines are obvious. There's a Canadian Victorian thing going on, too. 
First two are in St George; the rest in St Andrew's. Thjis part of N.B. looks very different than the north shore, along Northumberland Strait, like Shediac and  Caissie Cape, which I blogged last week, and which is vraiment Acadien.
