Dartmouth Shore in the Harbour of Halifax, Nova Scotia.

There’s a lot going on here.

The focus for me is this view, one of the earliest views of Dartmouth, full of detail!

This is the only representation I’ve ever seen of the gibbet at what used to be Hangman’s Point, later the Nantucket Whaling Company lands, the Marine Railway, the Dartmouth Shipyards, and now King’s Wharf.
