St. Lawrence - 1780
mouth of the Margaree River, Cape Breton
This engraving, entitled The Departure, shows the surviving officer of the St. Lawrence wreck leaving the other survivors behind as he sets out to find help. If you look closely you can see the ship wreckage amidst the bleak snow-covered coast of Cape Britain.
