Dartmouth, Aerial View

Dartmouth, 1950s

St. Peter’s Church seen at upper middle, First Baptist at Victoria at middle right. Christ Church at middle, Victoria Road Baptist church is seen a block behind between it and its hall, Grace United Church is seen at middle bottom, (what I believe was) another Baptist church a block closer on Ochterloney near where the original St. Peter’s stood, Post Office at middle right.

St. James Church at five corners seen here with Dartmouth Medical Center across the street. Starr Manufacturing is the long dark colored building along Prince Albert Road to its left, the old Hawthorne School at the upper right, Silver’s Road directly ahead at top middle.

Bus depot at far left, Dartmouth Ferry Terminal at bottom left, the ferry is docked. Nova Scotia Power Dartmouth Division at middle left, Stern’s corner at middle right, Jacobson’s at far right.

This whole neighborhood was essentially disappeared through “urban renewal”, Boggs Street is now the extent of Alderney Drive and parking lots, Green Street has all but disappeared since, too. So many Quaker homes and other historical relics lost to the wrecking ball. Much of the land has sat vacant for many decades since, as with the land along the waterfront to the north of Downtown, up through the Church Street, Park Avenue and Edward Street lands that lay next to the Common.

Dartmouth Shore, 1786

“Dartmouth Shore, N.S., 1786. From Anchorage off Naval Yard, Halifax, Looking Eastward. A general view of the town of Dartmouth as it appeared at this period, is here given. It is impossible, however, to identify most of the buildings, which were merely dwellings. Dartmouth was first settled in 1750. On 2nd March, 1786, the old … Read more

Dartmouth from Mount Amelia

An excellent rendition of downtown Dartmouth and Dartmouth Cove from near the corner of what would be Blink Bonnie and Old Ferry Road today. It is dated to 1929, but it seems to be meant to represent a much earlier time, perhaps more than 60 years older than that.

The two church steeples seems to indicate that the one on the left is the original St. Peter’s on Chapel Lane at Ochterloney Street, (the steeple to its right, the Church of England, now Christ Church). In the harbor is a ferry which could be the “Sir Charles Ogle“, it has a similar, rather distinctive profile with a large smokestack in the middle. Judge Alexander’s home is not yet built (later known as Evergreen,) though there appears to be a wooden cabin on the site, which might aid further in dating what time period it is meant to portray. That the Grist Mill is noted on the reverse in a further clue.

“The trestle walk is a Mill race extending to the Grist Mill, see “Story of Dartmouth”. Presented by Mrs. W.G. Watson [on behalf of?] Mrs. George Starr.”
