Cannes, a French watering-place in the department of Alpes-Maritimes, is situated on the Mediterranean shore. As a health resort it was first selected by Lord Brougham. It was here, too, that Napoleon landed, March 1, 1815, on his return from Elba. It does a considerable trade in flowers, the produce of the surrounding country. The Duke of Albany died here in 1884, and the Albany Memorial Church of St. George of England was erected in his memory.
