Subject: RE: happy? � Dec 6 (Halifax Explosion)
Thank you, Abby, for this and for all the others in this fascinating series.

I had never heard of this terrible disaster, but was intrigued by your post to look up information about it. I have to say that I was very impressed by the high quality of the information provided, especially by the CBC and the Nova Scotia Archives.

These are really excellent online resources which deserve some recognition for the way they explore all aspects of the disaster and its consequences, using official documents, personal accounts, photographs and film to give a history that works on many levels.

I'll post the links here to add to the record:
