'An East Coast Port': Halifax in Wartime, 1939-1945

Halifax City Hall

Snap shots taken in Bedford, Halifax, and the Annapolis Valley, taken during the late 1930s and early 1940s.

The Halifax Board of Trade's guidebook Halifax: The City by the Sea, 1936, p.6, stated that "the City Hall, on the north end of the Parade has considerable architectural merit. The Parade, with its heavy balustrade, lawn and fountain, is an artistic open space in which years ago, military reviews were held." [V/F, vol. 60, #13]
