The heart of the communities around Halifax harbour lives on in the people who left their mark
Nothing illustrates the dynamic history of the towns that make up Halifax Regional Municipality better than the lives of the men and women who have called it home. The behind-the-scenes history of Halifax, Dartmouth and Bedford comes to life in this collection of insightful stories.
The writers describe lives of people who either found their final resting place in Halifax or for whom there is a plaque or memorial. John Boileau recounts the exciting story of confederate dare-devil John Taylor Wood, Jim Lotz relates the fascinating life of art gallery director Robert Dietz. Della Stanley sheds light on Samuel Shannon, a community builder who has been forgotten in most histories of Halifax. Pam Lutz brings dance instructor Gunter Buchta into the limelight. Roma Senn tells all that's fit to be told about the famous twin-cities madame, Ada.
With many colourful illustrations, this book will appeal to anyone interested in Canadian history.
