"Paving Town of Port Hawkesbury"


One can sometimes locate photographs of buildings in collections not relating to built heritage. For example, the Nova Scotia Department of Transportation fonds includes photographs of road and bridge construction/repair, primarily ca. 1920 to ca. 1940.

If a building stands next to a bridge or road under construction or repair, it may be shown in a photograph such this Port Hawkesbury street-scene.

Date: 1933
