From 1934 to 1938, the Nova Scotia Department of Highways undertook a major highway reconstruction project known as the Paving Programme. A photographic record was compiled as work was carried out around the province, and to mark completion of the project, three large presentation albums of black-and-white photographs, 1936-38, were presented to the department’s Chief Engineer, R.W. McColough. Now, nearly eighty years later, those albums have been digitized and are displayed here for Internet visitors to explore.
