Schooner Days MCCXV (1215)

What happened to the John E. Hall, 9 Apr 1955

This issue of "Schooner days" covers events as witnessed by Amos MacDonald, keeper of the Salmon Point (Wicked Point" in sailors' terms) in Prince Edward County during Ontario's shortage of coal in 1902; including the wreck of the John R. Noyes. This article should be read in conjunction with the previous issue, "Angels in oilskins", in which the author describes the "tug" John E. Hall as "that queer white American that looked like a two decked passenger-package-freighter, cut down forward like a car ferry."
