In City Hall there is a great room called Memorial Hall where in the past Sir John A. MacDonald was laid in state and now where meetings on planning matters are held or, as shown at the very bottom of this post, citizenship hearings. Memorial Hall was remade in the 1920s as a memorial to the lost of WWI, our version of Monet's lily pads in Paris.
There are 10 large stained glass windows, each celebrating a battle and a sector of the war cause. Below each window is a crest, five of which are the crest of Canada and five for the then nine provinces. In each of the provincial crests there is a Nova Scotia crest and in the middle of that crest a fish. A lovely little hand-painted white fish on a cobalt blue background. Each fish is clickable for a larger version.
