Halifax’s resident lion and unicorn population

Halifax is an historic city with loads of stories, some well-known and others waiting to be discovered. Whenever possible, I try to walk down Hollis Street for this very reason – a couple of city blocks packs in a lot of interesting architecture and tons of history. If you find yourself wandering on Hollis in my fair city, be sure to look up and around, because you will find little treats like the lion and unicorn who sit atop Nova Scotia’s Province House, Canada’s oldest seat of government.

For my own amusement, I imagine these two talk about the comings and goings of various business and government types. Those conversations, however imaginary they are, must be hysterical.

Unrelated: I prefer the unicorn’s accessories to the lion’s.
