This anchor is from the wooden steamer Frank O'Connor that caught fire off Cana Island in 1919 while carrying 3,000 tons of coal. Lighthouse keepers Knudsen and Picor launched the station's boat and towed the stricken vessel's lifeboats toward Cana Island before the Coast Guard arrived and took the crew onto Baileys Harbour.
More information about the shipwreck and underground photos can be seen HERE.
