St. Paul s is Halifax s oldest building, its first place of worship, and remains central to the civic life of the city after more than 250 years on the Grand Parade. St. Paul s figures prominently in the city s long relationship with the British royal family, and has played an important role in key events in Halifax history, from the town s founding to the sinking of the "Titanic," the 1917 Explosion, and the immense tragedies of two world wars. Through it all the church has served as a place of worship and a source of outreach into the broader community. The building itself is fascinating, with many fine architectural features and beautiful furnishings. All these elements of St. Paul s history are explored in this book. Illustrated with a wide selection of historical and modern visuals--many in full colour--"St. Paul s in the Grand Parade" is a vivid reflection on one of the country s most historic places of worship.Emsley, Sarah Baxter is the author of 'St. Paul's in the Grand Parade: 1749-1999', published 1999 under ISBN 9780887804861 and ISBN 0887804861.
