Synopsis: This extraordinary collection of historical photographs and informative text tells the story of one of Canada's most important historic sites: Pier 21 on the Halifax waterfront. It was through this "Gateway of Hope" that over one million new Canadians passed on their way to a new life in Canada. The facility, which operated continuously from 1928 to 1971, was also the processing site for endless numbers of soldiers, prisoners of war, displaced persons, and refugees as well as "war brides" and "guest children" caught up in the tragic drama of two world wars.
Pier 21: An Illustrated History includes an introductory chapter on Pier 21's precursor, Pier 2, and its role in Halifax's development as a strategic port of destination, not to mention its significant contribution to our country's nationhood, at war and at peace.
