Halifax City Print
This is Halifax on the 1st of April 1996, which is the moment the modern Halifax Regional Municipality was born. It's one of a series of images I put together between April of 2012 and September of 2016 showing my adopted home city of Montreal, my old home town, and a selection of other Canadian cities. Consider it part of a getting-to-know-you exercise with the nation's architecture and history. The northernmost edge of the map is roughly North Street, the Halifax Citadel and Town Clock are shown a little left of centre, and an ounce of Dartmouth is visible at top right.
Although we always try to have this print in stock, please allow up to 2 weeks for delivery in case we need to special order it in. Thank you!
