Pardon the blurriness, these were shot through a glass brick

The Herald Building- Halifax Nova Scotia

This building, the former home of the Chronicle Herald, is currently vacant. It was built after a 1912 fire destroyed the Dennis Building on Granville St.
The Coast says it will be torn down soon, though there are no concrete plans for what is to be built on the site.

A shame to see it go. I plan to go take more pictures before they knock her down.

South End Diner – Halifax Nova Scotia

I ate lunch here today. The interior of the diner features a horseshoe shaped counter, with a grill in back, and padded bongo stools. Every inch of the walls are covered in commemorative and souvenir plates.

I had the cheeseburger, which came topped with grilled onions, relish and mustard, and an order of french fries. The burger had that wonderful lunch counter taste, juicy on the inside, a little crispy on the outside.

Here it is, showing how close it is to the Olympic Confectionary. Both are across the street from the rail station and the bus terminal.
