Lake Banook Walking Tour by David Jones

On Saturday, May 2nd, in conjunction with an annual series of guided tours organized by Jane's Walk Halifax,  David Jones (creator of the Dartmouth History Blog) conducted a historical walking tour of world-famous Lake Banook, Dartmouth. Special thanks to Sam Austin of Spacing Atlantic for promoting the walk. The attendees were receptive and enthusiastic!
