Film Description:
"Large glass-plate photographs taken by Oliver Massey Hill, manager of the Halifax studio of the prestigious Notman Gallery (1869-1905), provide a remarkable visual record of the 19th-century British garrison town of Halifax. His candid and often humorous musings about what he saw through his lens and authentic music of the period combine to breathe life into the images of this fascinating era."
