Thinking Out Loud

These are photos of a neighbourhood in north end Halifax.

It is called the Hydrostone because the vast majority of homes were made from stone.

This was the extended area of the neighbourhood in which I grew up.

It was a 'working class' area that was totally devastated by an explosion in 1917.

This entire area of about 10 city blocks was paid for by the city of Boston after that explosion.

Today it is becoming the 'have to place' to live and shop in Halifax.

This residential and shopping area has become a Nova Scotia Heritage Site. Go figure, my old neighbourhood.
