Crofton Hall - 1898

Sable Island

Crofton Hall

This photograph was taken on Sable Island during a visit by Alexander Graham Bell a few days after Crofton Hall went aground. Her hull is held captive by the sand while the waves pound it apart. A few days later the hull broke apart and within weeks nothing was visible.
