Description

NOVA SCOTIA Halifax 1882 Blakley & Co, ⇵ Reeded Edge Breton 901, ICCS VF-20

Blakley for some years did a retail business at Halifax. The word salt seems to be an error of the Birmingham engraver, who seems to have confounded dry goods with something relating to dried cod fish.

The building on the corner of Granville and Duke Streets where the company was is still standing, and houses the Delta Barrington Hotel.
