Halifax Transit Ferry


Recommended Posts

Halifax Transit Ferry ‘Vincent Coleman’ at Dartmouth NS, August 24, 2019……and note the ‘Dot-Dash’ under each letter…..spelling out ‘Vincent Coleman’ in Morse Code.

Coleman was a telegraph operator for the Intercolonial Railway at the time of the Halifax Explosion in 1917 which killed 2,000 and injured 9,000. Coleman was killed but not before he sent a message over the railway telegraph warning approaching trains not to come into the city......probably saving the lives of many.
