In this engaging look at the restoration and redevelopment of Halifax's historic waterfront, one-time pirate turned Halifax-business-magnate, Enos Collins (1774-1871), reappears from the pages of history to contemplate the past and the present. As Enos muses and meanders among quaint stone buildings and modern monoliths, he chances upon the modern-day politicians and businessmen who helped make this cooperative effort between the government and the private sector possible.
