Province House, Halifax

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. 5, informed visitors that Province House "...bounded by Hollis, Prince, Granville and George Streets, built in 1811-1819, is of beautiful architecture. The chambers of Assembly and Council contain excellent oil paintings of notable personages. The Legislative Library is a credit to the Province." [V/F, vol. 60, #13]
