In December 1917, one of the greatest natural harbours in the world was humming with excitement. Halifax Harbour was filled with naval convoys and merchant vessels while factories worked overtime in support of the Allied war effort in Europe. But on December 6, Canada's worst disaster struck, as two ships–one carrying high explosives–collided. The explosion killed and injured thousands, razing the city's North End and destroying nearly everything in its path.
