July 23, 2019: City Hall, Halifax

 

A nice open space in Halifax is the grounds of this attractive Victorian building, City Hall.

City Hall was built between 1887 and 1890 and is one of the oldest public buildings in Nova Scotia.  It's built of sandstone and has a clock tower, with clocks facing north and south.  Nova Scotians like to get full use of their real estate investments, and the building still functions as City Hall to this day.  It was designated a National Historic Site of Canada.

There were a number of these very comfortable looking Adirondack chairs on the grounds of City Hall.  A pleasant place to sit on a warm summer day.

As you'd expect of a mature city, a War Memorial is nearby.

And directly across the street, a rather attractive mural, one of the best pieces of street-art we encountered in the city.
