"In Quiet Remembrance"

9:05a on December 6, 1917 was a fateful day for the city of Halifax. A French cargo ship named SS Mont-Blanc hit against a Norwegian ship SS Imo near Upper Halifax Harbor. The French ship exploded due to an internal fire, killing about 2000 people and injuring 9000! Halifax Explosion Memorial Bell Tower commemorates the victims of this devastating incident and also those who were rendered homeless when the surrounding neighborhood of Richmond blew up. It also pays homage to the courageous people who rebuilt the city of Halifax. The tall memorial is located within Fort Needham Memorial Park, close to where the calamity occurred. There are 10 bells hanging from this memorial, which were donated by Barbara Orr, the lone survivor in her family. At 9:05a on December 6 every year, a memorial service is held and a short silence is observed.
