"We Shall Never Rebuild Halifax Unless Everybody Works". 

In the background of a photograph found in the online collection of the Nova Scotia Archives is a letterpress printed poster that was essentially Halifax's version of the famous "Keep Calm and Carry On" poster. "We Shall Never Rebuild Halifax Unless Everybody Works" was created after the Halifax Explosion, which had a tremendous impact on the city and its citizens − taking years to rebuild. The quote is a sentiment that still holds true today.

This inspiring commemorative keepsake print was printed by hand on an antique proofing press, in a limited 2 colour run. It serves as a great reminder that we, as Haligonians, have to work together to ensure Halifax maximizes its full potential.
