The bow of the TORHAMVAN,
which went aground in 1926

"The bow of the TORHAMVAN, which went aground in 1926 off Cold East Point
in Ferryland (see photo of the wreck taken in that year on this site).
This photo, showing the late Tom Morry, a descendant of the Morry's who settled
in this area in the late 1700s, was taken in 1961. Note the other photo of the
TORHAMVAN on this site taken in 1976, by which time the wreck was reduced to
nothing more than scattered remnants of its boilers."
