Ornament - City of Halifax
Life in Halifax, the capital city of Nova Scotia, revolves around the sea. Whether you’re exploring the many shops in its bustling downtown or enjoying a leisurely stroll alongside its magnificent harbour, there’s a lot to do, a lot to discover.
There’s the Public Gardens, Citadel Hill, Pier 21, the Historic Properties, the Bluenose II — when it’s in port — and the Grand Parade, a historic military parade square dating from the founding of Halifax in 1749. The Grand Parade houses the architecturally significant, Halifax City Hall. Fixed at four minutes past nine, the clock on the northern face of the building’s seven-storey clock tower commemorates the Halifax Explosion of 1917, the world’s largest man-made accidental explosion.
Canada’s leading pewtersmith is pleased to present its City of Halifax Ornament, designed especially for those who have a secret desire to experience life beside the sea in Canada’s East Coast metropolis.
