Newfoundland Journal - The Wreck of the SS Ethie

During a storm, in December 1919, the SS Ethie, a coastal trader, powered by both steam and sail, was wrecked on the west coast of Newfoundland. The snowy winds reached hurricane force and ice formed on the ship making it top heavy. All passengers and crew were saved by the actions of Captain English, his crew, the citizens of Martin's Point and a dog.

Little is left after 91 years but I took photos of some of the debris. The first photo is Martin's Point. The full story may be found at The Wreck of the S. S. Ethie.
