Halifax, Nova Scotia

Photos by Walt & Gloria Fogler-Mancini

Halifax is a small city that is easy to walk around. It was destroyed by the explosion of a munitions ship in 1917, so most downtown buildings date from that time.  The people are very friendly and their creativity is evident everywhere.

The Maritime Museum of the Atlantic has many interesting exhibits.  An old cemetery was within blocks of the ocean.  Another cemetery holds some of those lost on the Titanic.

Halifax was founded by the British in 1749 to take advantage of its large natural harbor.  They built a fort on Citadel Hill to protect the city and its commerce. 

The photographs were taken with Leica digital cameras, an M8 and the R9 with a digital back. All images are copyrighted and may not be reproduced without permission.   If you are interested in any form of reproduction, please e-mail us at
