Nova Scotia

After signing papers for our first Mortgage, my wife and I left our Lawyers office, located in New Glasgow, Nova Scotia. Once I hit the top of the stairs, I began to smell a tobacco pipe smoke, I remember asking my wife if she could smell anything, but she didn't. As we were approximately half way down the stairs, I noticed a man, dressed in old almost Civil war era clothing building a brick wall, smoking a pipe. He never looked at me, he just kept looking out onto the street. The downstairs was undergoing construction. As i approached the bottom of the stairs he was gone! My wife saw nothing! The Current building only dates back to the 1930's, however the wall that my friend was building was 2-3 feet inside the present structure.
