description <p>Sometimes landmarks have modest<br />beginnings. One of Prince<br />Edward Island's best known architectural<br />treasures may trace its origins to<br />a trans-Atlantic ocean liner in the early<br />1890s. It was there, according to one<br />story, that a bored passenger named<br />Alexander McDonald came across a<br />promotional brochure about a beautiful<br />little island far from the hurly-burly<br />and summer heat of America's cities.<br />That coincidence led him to Prince<br />Edward Island, and to the construction<br />of Dalvay-by-the-Sea.</p>
