  Publisher:  Saltscapes

In 1976, the Waterfront Development Corporation Limited was created, with responsibilities for the redevelopment of the Halifax, Dartmouth and-later-Bedford waterfronts to restore the flavour and vigour of an earlier time. In Where the Water Meets the Land, author and historian John Boileau recounts the story of Halifax Harbour and its waterfront from prehistory to the modern day, detailing the rise and decline of the historic area, and its rejuvenation during the last 30 years under the guidance of the Waterfront Development Corporation Limited.
