Retro Saturday

This cannon is pretty old and was used to fend off those frisky French back in the day when Halifax was an English stronghold defending and protecting what was then Canada.

I am very happy that my French great-great grandfather, Theodore, waited till all this was over.

He was smart and came here via France and the US in the mid 1850's when the conflict was history!

This cannon is one of a few that can be found in Point Pleasant Park in Halifax.
