Nova Scotia, its climate, resources and advantages

“Opposite the city stands the pretty little town of Dartmouth, containing a population of about three thousand. A couple of miles south of Dartmouth, opposite the centre of the city of Halifax, on a commanding site, is the Provincial Asylum for the Insane, a very large, handsome stone building capable of accommodating 300 patients. The scenery around Halifax and Dartmouth, is charming… The Dartmouth lakes.. also present some beautiful landscapes.”
