A history and geography of Nova Scotia

“Dartmouth (5000), about a mile from Halifax, across the harbour, has a fine situation, and is a beautiful residential town, especially in the hilly and lake section back a little from the harbour. It has various manufactures, as sugar refining and making of rope and skates. The provincial Lunatic Asylum is in the neighbourhood of the town”
