Shipfax View of Halifax Harbour- soon to be compromised?

Shipfax-the eye on the harbour- may not be able to see this kind of picture for much longer. The large parking lot across the street will be closed on June 1 as construction starts on a major hotel/ shopping complex.

In this photo HMCS St. John's returns from a four day visit to its namesake city. She will be tying up at the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic.

To the left is the famous Foundation Maritime Salvage Shed (now owned by Svitzer Canada), and in the background is the tanker North Point at anchor. She arrived yesterday in ballast from New York.

St.John's is escorted by naval auxiliary tug Glenevis. Behind her is the 3 masted tour boat Silva. On the Dartmouth shore is the Woodside ferry terminal, and a portion of a train, with autoracks from Autoport.
In the foreground are some Purolater courier trucks marshaling for the 5 o'clock rush.
