This book combines text and beautiful photographs to document and celebrate Province House in Halifax, the seat of the provincial legislature. Province House is the home of parliamentary democracy, freedom of the press and responsible government in Canada. This book offers a tour of the building — known for being one of the finest examples of the Palladian architectural style in North America — and its contents, and describes the many important events which have taken place within its distinguished walls.

Nova Scotia's Province House contains many fascinating historical images drawn from Province House's own collection. The building's principal rooms, including the legislative chamber, the outstanding legislative library, and the Red Room (formerly the home of the legislature's upper house) are documented here with new colour photography by Len Wagg, award-winning Nova Scotian photographer and author.

LEN WAGG has been a photographer for over three decades and is well-known for his love of shooting Nova Scotian scenes. His work has been published in several renowned publications, including Maclean's and the New York Times, and in addition, he is the author of five books, including the award-winning Wild Nova Scotia. He lives in Wellington, Nova Scotia.
