I have been trying to find information about the image posted above by someone123 since I didn't know that there was such an elaborate gate at the Public Gardens. While looking through the Nova Scotia Archive images I came across the one below which is dated 1899 and is of an exhibition hall/rink that was at Tower Road and Morris Street. Does anyone know when this rink was demolished?
"Carnival, Old Exhibition Rink, Feb. 1899" (source: http://www.gov.ns.ca/nsarm/virtual/h...ives.asp?ID=62
PS: It was the Exhibition Building which could also be used as a rink. here is another image - http://www.gov.ns.ca/nsarm/virtual/n...ves.asp?ID=160
PS: In the image above, it looks like the photographer just superimposed images on top of a picture of the exhibition hall. At least one of the images (pirate costumed man) looks like one that I saw in another archived studio image from 1899. It is eerie looking at these old photos - the people are like ghosts who passed away long go.
