Lecture Series: The Life and Times of Sir Sanford Fleming

Nova Scotia Association of Architects, South Shore Chapter / Lunenburg School of the Arts Lecture Series 2019, with Syd Dumaresq.

You probably know Sir Sanford Fleming as the father of time zones with a strong connection to the Dingle Memorial Tower. Do you know that he lived in Halifax while he engineered the NS Railway for Sir Charles Tupper, that his Halifax residence is a heritage building on Brunswick St., that he loved Halifax so much that he bought a mansion in the south end for a summer home and all the land between the Melville Cove prison and Jollimore for his summer retreat, that he died in that summer retreat, or that he designed Canada’s first postage stamp?
