The Harbour

Halifax, in winter as in summer, plays host to ships from all parts of the world--freighters, tankers, and luxury liners. To keep the procession moving is a tremendous job requiring modern facilities, scientific aids, and constant direction by the harbourmaster. The coordination required is shown with the piloting and berthing of a Swedish freighter.
