This photo of a car coasting “up” Magnetic Hill appeared in the August 10, 1933 edition of the Telegraph-Journal newspaper in Saint John. It represents the first widely published report and photos of this phenomenon.
In order to keep the illusion of Magnetic Hill untainted by development, it remains naturally landscaped and unpaved.
The sign in this c1940 photo reads, "MAGNETIC HILL: TO APPRECIATE THIS PHENOMENON PROCEED TO SPOT INDICATED BY WHITE POST TURN OFF MOTOR RELEASE BRAKES"
