The fascinating true story of how New Brunswickers changed from left to right driving in the early days of the automobile – and the controversy that ensued – will be the focus of the York Sunbury Historical Society’s virtual speaker series featuring historian Sean Cox.
This LIVE event is FREE and will be held via ZOOM at 7 pm on Thursday, May 19, 2022. The presentation will be recorded and made available online after the event.
“Fashionable Motoring and New Brunswick’s Keep-Left Crisis” will examine North America’s preoccupation with the automobile in the early 20th century. It will show how a difference of opinion over “keeping right” or “left” when traveling the growing network of roads led to a cross-Canada and cross-border debate laced with national identity, political sniping, and regional lobbying.
Sean Cox is a Ph.D. candidate at UNB’s Department of History. His work is largely focused on the intersection between environmental history, technological modernity, and commodified tourism of the 20th century.
