Fish Stores Down in Broad Cove

Each month, we turn our eyes to publications from Lunenburg County past to bring you excerpts from days gone by.

Bridgewater Bulletin; Tuesday, March 6, 1900:
The storm of last Thursday night was a terrible one. The wind arose to a perfect hurricane and the tide swept all before it.

It was almost impossible to be abroad and pedestrians were few.

At the LaHave Islands and along the entire coast the damage done was enormous.

At Broad Cove the breakwater was badly damaged and almost ruined while several fish stores blew down.

Five vessels are reported ashore in Mosher’s Harbour.
