|Halifax map, circa 1894|
Ridiculously quick post today - I couldn't resist sharing a detail of this gorgeous map from Karl Baedeker's Handbook for Travellers: The Dominion of Canada, with Newfoundland and an Excursion to Alaska, published originally before 1923, which has been reprinted recently in 2010. Please check out the entire map through the link. Of great interest to my research is the left side of the peninsula, featuring an Old Penitentiary! I will definitely be revealing more about this architectural oddity and its placement near the park. How's that for a teaser?!
