Halifax, March 1969


A few pics from 1969 have been uploaded to the Halifax Municipal Archives recently.  I like old city pics, mostly for the cars that were captured with people just going about their day.

I'm seeing surprisingly little rust on some of those older vehicles.

My personal favorite in these photos is the 57 Chevy wagon. I saw one just like this at the roadside in downtown Halifax in 1978. Could they have been the same car? Probably not but as Todd notes this pic was taken in at least 1968 (See Cutlass) and the car still looks solid.

I worked a lot in Halifax from 1980-86 and I was still seeing solid 50s and 60s cars on the road there in the summertime. I even bought a 56 Chevy 210 2 door wagon there in 1980.

Halifax Municipal Archives recently changed software and providers for their archive photos, so all of the above photo links are no longer any good.

 I can look up those photos again and add them at another time, when I have a few moments.  Shouldn't cause any problem for the CP site, as I know the archives pics are public domain.  smile

Honestly, I don't know if anybody ever goes back and looks at these threads, so I'm careful to not spend a bunch of time on something that nobody looks at... wink
