Some archival photos from around Nova Scotia (gallery is here):

Halifax looking east near Barrington and George circa 1940


Dennis Building


Old apartment and industrial buildings near the ferry terminal, 1950's


Looking across the south grounds of Province House


The description said this building, torn down when all of Buckingham Street was destroyed for Scotia Square around 1960, was built in 1818. Some of the detailing looks much later though.



Hollis Street. The two buildings on the right are still there but the rest were torn down for the Royal Bank office tower around 1960. The building on the left corner was the head office of the Royal Bank from around 1870-1910.



Birney streetcars on Barrington Street. These buildings are mostly still there.


Granville Street, I would guess around 1900.


Barrington Street


Barrington Street


Yarmouth, NS


Sydney, NS


Windsor, NS

The older people here often joke that we built New York. In truth, we only ever accounted for a small percentage of the workers there - but that small number was hugely significant locally. It was basically, for us, the Alberta of its time. I have a couple of uncles who did it for a while. Anyhow, happened upon a little documentary about the b'ys. I didn't realize it was ever officially noticed in this regard by anyone outside.
