Shipwreck's Anchor

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 14 December 2020 in Miscellaneous and Portfolio.

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.

That's a huge anchor, Steven, and obviously very heavy! B&W serves it well here.

Et depuis 1919 personne n'a pensé à la déplacer ? C'est dommage et peut-être dangereux de la laisser sur la plage me semble-t-il !
Belle photo et j'aime ton choix du sépia en rapport avec l'histoire qui date de longtemps.
Bonne journée Steven

And the anchor remained for the memory of the event.
The slight sepia tone, reinforces the idea of memorial.
