Martin’s Point, Newfoundland
The S.S. Ethie coastal steamship ran aground in a fierce storm on December 11, 1919 at Martin’s Point, a few kilometres north of Sally’s Cove. Luckily all of the 92 passengers and crew were saved, including a baby sent ashore in a mailbag. The sea has eroded most of the S.S. Ethie, however a few pieces of the hull, the boilers and engines are still visible from shore.
