get some halifax-shun

end of an era in Halifax, NS

Toronto. George sent me a few photos the other day including this gem from the Nova Scotia Archives Photo Collection. This is simply another example of the importance of photography in recording history and the ability of archives to hold and display such photographic resources.

I wonder who today would otherwise know that in March of 1949 tram-car service in the main part of Halifax was ended?

Thank you, George Dunbar, for discovering the Archives and this photograph.

Note. The title of this post is a riff on the 1965 song sung by the Rolling Stones, “I Can’t Get No Satisfaction“. While I tend more to Beatles, the ‘Stones song brings back memories to me as it was often played on radio back then.
