"SS MONT BLANC MONUMENT"

    On December 6, 1917, part of the anchor shaft from SS Mont Blanc, weighing approximately 1140 pounds, was blown a distance of over two miles when the munitions ship caught fire and exploded in Halifax Harbour. Raised in 1936 by the City of Halifax, the shaft has now been mounted in a rock cairn close to the Northwest Arm within 200 feet of where it originally landed.

Dedicated: December 6, 1989
Location: Spinnaker/Anchor Drive
