NS Archives launches new photo archives

Over 5,800 images and video of WWII Halifax.


Congratulations to the NS Archives, who launched an amazing site of WWII images and video of Halifax. The collection includes photos, records, personal correspondence and diaries, rare print material, cartoons, documentary art and film footage. Many are being shown for the first time, including "the press censor's private photo collection capturing in meticulous detail the top-secret departure of convoys from Halifax harbour; his personal journal describing daily life in a city that was essentially under siege; and a series of newly-acquired photographs showcasing the infamous VE-Day Riots, as Halifax celebrated war's end on 8 June 1945."
