Lovell's 1871
Provincial Business Directory
An island on the north of Bonavista Bay, district of Bonavista. The island is so thoroughly barren that soil for house gardens had to be brought from the main land. This is a good fishing station and a large business is done here. The harbor is safe but small. During the time of the spring seal fishery great numbers of seals are often washed upon the shore. It is a post town and port of entry. Distant from St. John's by overland route, weekly 183 miles, and by steamer fortnightly 100 miles. Fare $6.00. Mail fortnightly. Population 1073.
