1 Metson, Graham, comp./ed. With Cheryl Lean. (Eric Hutton, Victor Oland, Leslie Roberts, Helen Creighton, Terence Robertson, et al.) AN EAST COAST PORT...HALIFAX AT WAR 1939-1945.
McGraw-Hill Ryerson, Toronto, 1981. 
157 pp, 10 7/8" H, soft cover. ISBN 0075484188 Profusely illustrated with b&w photographs. " 'An East Coast Port' was a familiar phrase to Canadians in the Second World War. It was the newspaper byline used, for reasons of secrecy, on stories ab out the North Atlantic convoys, and it almost always meant Halifax or one of the other smaller Maritime ports. The Second World War was a period that Haligonians alive then will never forget. Halifax was the chief convoy port and a vital p a r t o f t he war effort. Filled with sailors and soldiers, caring for the survivors of ships torpedoed sometimes just beyond the harbour gates, repairing the damaged vessels that limped into port, Halifax was Canada's only front-line city. Thi s bo ok of p h ot ographs, interviews, articles and anecdotes recaptures that unique period in Halifax's history....From the first blows of the war to the notorious VE Day riots at war's end and the arrival of the war brides, the book is a nostalg ic an d f a sci nat in g a ccount of Halifax in wartime." Interior - clean and tight with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - hinge creases, very light edge wear, one small corner crease, light browning on spine, one spine crease. Very Good-
