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

Public Gardens, Halifax

The Nova Scotia Relief Map 1932 Directory, p. 182, emphasized in bold print, “Do not leave Halifax without visiting the Public Gardens” because they are “...said to be the finest in America; they comprise about fourteen acres and contain ponds and fountains, beautiful and artistically laid out flower beds, and charming promenades.”

The pamphlet The Public Gardens of Halifax, Nova Scotia, p. 5, used this photograph with the caption "The mirrored lake, Halifax Public Gardens." [F 107/H 12, #11]
