Photo Stories: Ferry to Nova Scotia

Our dream of sharing a travel bubble with Nova Scotia has been dashed, at least for the near future. In our history album, we find some photos of travelling on Northumberland Ferries’ first ferry, MV Prince Nova between Wood Islands and Caribou which served between 1941 and 1958. You can only imagine the relief they felt with the war being over, doing their best to return to family life. The thrill of getting in our car, loading onto the ferry or crossing the bridge, and embarking on an adventure will be ours again. Here are a few photos of heading out on the Prince Nova to visit relatives in Halifax in the late 1940s.

    Thanks for sharing! We sometimes forget that our elders did all those trips we did not do until quite a few years later. Hope we will be able to do more of those trips over the next few years after we conquer Covid-19………..
