Lovell's 1871
Provincial Business Directory
A very picturesque inlet on the west side of Bonavista Bay. The great Northern mail road in process of construction passes the head of the bay, but it is not sufficiently made for travelling. The Gambo Ponds discharge their waters into this bay through the Gambo brook, and the land is well wooded. Distant from Salvage by boat 23 miles. Mail weekly. Population 55.

Over the years, many of the names have become
