Pier 21: An Illustrated History of Canada's Gateway is an extraordinary collection of historical photographs and informative text that tells the story of one of Canada's most important National Historic Sites: Pier 21 on the Halifax waterfront in Nova Scotia. It was through this "Gateway of Hope" that over one million new Canadians passed on their way to a new life in Canada. The facility, which operated continuously between 1928 and 1971, was also the processing site for endless numbers of soldiers, prisoners of war, displaced persons and refugees as well as war brides and British guest children caught up in the tragic drama of two world wars. By Alexa Thompson and Debi van de Wiel, Nimbus Publishing, 2002.
