Still standing in North-End Dartmouth: 1918 and 2019
“Take 30 unidentified photos of Explosion-damaged buildings, recently posted online thanks to a donation to the NS Archives. Add the detective work of figuring out the Dartmouth addresses of these buildings (most of which had been presumed to be in Halifax) and the names of the people who lived there. What do you get? Dozens of settler homes that survived the Explosion and are still standing today (including one built in 1875!), and stories of unimaginable loss for the residents of North-End Dartmouth & area. And plenty of mysteries still to be solved...
Join walk leader Maura Donovan for a whole new look at the Explosion's impact on this tight-knit hamlet. To view photographer WG MacLaughlan's photos in the NS Archives’ online exhibit, “Still Standing”, go to: https://novascotia.ca/archives/maclaughlan/archives.asp?ID=63. The Dartmouth photos are #151 to #174, and #196 to #209.“
