Description:
Collection of photographs of various shipwreck scenes. The SAINT MAGNUS capsized at the dock in Cleveland, 7 June 1895. The propeller CORSICA is shown with the bow partially stove in. The two masted schooner SAMANA lies on the beach, probably in 1879 when she was ashore east of Port Colborne, ON. She was pulled off, rebuilt, and run for over another decade. The final picture is one of an anonymous whaleback with a significant puncture.
