Winston Churchill (1874–1965) arrived in Halifax en route to Quebec to attend the Quebec Conference (held from September 12 to 16) between the British and American governments, hosted by Canada. A year earlier, Churchill had come through Halifax in secret for the first Quebec Conference. For security reasons, Halifax at the time was designated the “East Coast Port.” (Image: Editorial cartoonist Bob Chambers’s visual take on Churchill’s “secret” visit to Halifax in 1943. N.S.
