Dec 6th's infamy in Canada
As I walked to work the other day through a neighborhood that has a lot of rundown older houses (slowly gentrifying) I was wondering how many of them predated 1917. Most of them may have been built and/or repaired after the explosion. A few blocks away there are some buildings from the 1790s, pretty close to the harbour but a fair distance south of the epicenter of the blast. There are also a number of stone buildings from Victorian times on Brunswick St. No doubt they lost their windows in 1917.

This year at 9:04 AM on the 6th all the ships in the harbour blew their horns, and church bells tolled.
