A Ride Down Hollis Street in Halifax

These photos of buildings were taken while driving down Hollis Street in downtown Halifax last week. 

              It was approaching 3 P.M. and the light was reflecting on these sandstone gems.

                      The building on the left was the former Dominion Building and is now the 

                 The building to the left was a trust company building back in the 50's and 60's.

This building is the Consular Office of Finland. It is also known as the Benjamin Wier House.

           Here's a close-up. I wish I knew the architectural style but I don't. Someone, please

                                      enlighten me! The one above is a private residence. 

This is an old refurbished warehouse down near Pier 21 and is used by the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design.
This is but a few of the older buildings that are still standing in Halifax.
