Halifax Harbour from Dartmouth Common

The harbor mouth is seen directly ahead, George’s Island to the right, with Point Pleasant at the extreme right. To the left in the distance is McNabs Island, and the Dartmouth shore can be seen at extreme left. The church in the middle of the scene is likely Christ Church, the view looks to be from near Thistle Street and Victoria Road today.
