View of Halifax from the Mi’kmaq Encampment at Dartmouth

shannon park

This view appears to be from the vicinity of Tuft’s Cove. Citadel Hill is seen in the distance in the middle of the piece, the harbor mouth to the left. To the left of the harbor is a point on the Dartmouth shore, which appears to be the foot of Lyle Street, where the MacDonald Bridge crosses today.
