Halifax Part II

The Harlequin Book edition of Roger Sudden by Thomas H. Raddall has an illustration of early (1750s) Halifax, Nova Scotia. The one identifiable landmark is the church St. Paul's, built in 1750, to the right of our heroine's head.

The current steeple, seen in the 1831 illustration below, was added in 1812. The Harlequin view is to the right in this illustration and from behind the church looking to the harbour, largely hidden by the smoke.
