The Hydrostone district in North End Halifax Nova Scotia is seen as a living memorial to those sixteen hundred citizens killed and the nine thousand injured in the Halifax explosion December 6, 1917.

The Living Memorial provides historic photographs of the area pre explosion, during and post explosion, designed to bring awareness and remembrance to the community.

The Hydrostone district today, hundred years later, is a vital and vibrant community in North End Halifax, a truly “Living Memorial”.
