(Bank of Nova Scotia). “Wanted – a Suitable Building for The Bank of Nova Scotia.” / “La Banque de Nouvelle-Écosse cherche un édifice de prestige pourson siège social.” N.pl.: (Bank of Nova Scotia, 1986). Pp (44). Illustrate d. 8vo, illustrated white stapled card covers. When the bank of Nova Scotia's first president advertised for a building in the Halifax papers, it was 1832. The city had 15,000 people. The Bank's offices were two small rooms at Dalhousie College. But close to a century later, on August 3, 1931, the Bank opened one of the most impressive structures Nova Scotia had seen. It was hailed as “strikingly maritime” and “authentically Canadian,” and it would change the face of Canadian banking forever. This is the story of that magnificent building, of John M. Lyle, the extraordinary man who created it,and of the thousands of Nova Scotians who, in the half century since, have walked through its doors.” Bilingual (back-to-back) texts. Very good. 7.00
