Yea, it's a weird angle, maybe just the front drivers wheel up? There's a 64 and maybe even another bubbletop or 59 CP in the background.

Note the '57 has one of those frost shields on the back window.  I recall a lot of people used to install those on the inside of the glass as not every car had a defroster back then.  Also the old cars I've had with the rear defogger was only a blower motor feeding cold air from the trunk and didn't do much to remove frost from the rear window. I don't believe electric rear defrosters came into common use until some time in the 1970s.

I found a blog entry about them, linked below.

Not the best picture, but my mom and dad had a 59 in 59-60. The year before I was born. 

What I would give for this car now.

This was around the time when they were clearing out a bunch of older buildings during Halifax's "urban renewal" phase back in the fifties and sixties.

Here's a pic of what I think is a '52 or '53 Ford in Halifax back in 1962.  Note the mismatched doors and rocker panel falling off.

Wow, what a treasure trove of an archive Mark. Thanks for the link. There are a bunch of CP nuggets in there as well, but I won't steal your find. I just spent about two hours in there, nice to see the city documented all those old wooden buildings and houses before they were likely torn down. Kind of sad, but many were on the verge of collapsing by the look of it. What history!

 Hey Mark (great name!), feel free to post whatever you find interesting there, I'm not laying claim to any of it.  Having grown up in the Halifax area, I always enjoy looking through the archives site - some of it I remember, some of it was before my time.

There were some significant structures lost, including some stone structures that dated back to the late 1700s/early 1800s, similar to some of the Historic Properties buildings.  Some, especially the wooden structures, were really badly degraded, though and probably needed to go.

The really sad thing is that whole neighborhoods were cleared out, and not replaced with anything substantial.  That's what really hits me when I look through the site - these were neighborhoods where people grew up and lived their lives, and suddenly it was gone within the space of 10 years...

When I first moved to Toronto (very early '80s) that was going on until they finally smartened up! I found it very disheartening.

Oh to be a forward-thinking salvager in those times.
