On the first leg of his North American tour, the Prince of Wales arrives in Halifax, Nova Scotia

Prince of Wales, 1859, detail
07/30/1860
The Prince of Wales and his party had left St. Johns, Newfoundland bound for Halifax, Nova Scotia on July 26, 1860.  The two naval vessels carrying the group made such good time, however, that the Prince was able to make a three hour visit to Sydney on Cape Breton Island on July 28, 1860.  Continuing on, the royal party reached Halifax at the planned time on July 30, 1860.  (By John Osborne)
