      Looking Back at the Halifax Explosion

      Nova Scotia Archives and Records Management is pleased to announce the
      launch of two new web-site products to commemorate the 85th anniversary
      of the Halifax Harbour Explosion (6 December 1917). Both are available
      on the Archives' web site,


      The first, 'A Vision of Regeneration,' is a virtual exhibit showing how
      Halifax was rebuilt in the years immediately following the disaster.
      Built around 150 heritage photographs, maps, architectural plans and
      documents, with valuable background information, the exhibit is an ideal
      source for school projects--and a powerful visual memory of a city
      destroyed and rebuilt.

      The Archives has also partnered with the Halifax Foundation in a second
      web-site product, 'The Halifax Explosion Remembrance Book--A List of
      Those Who Died.' The first definitive listing for those killed in the
      disaster, it features a searchable database with detailed information
      for over 1900 casualties; more than 300 of these are newly-confirmed and
      identified victims.
