Lovell's 1871
Provincial Business Directory
This extends over about ten miles of coast on which the people are scattered in several small settlements. The shore is particulary inhospital and has proved fatal to many ships. Clam Cove, about five miles north of Cape Race, is the burial place of the passangers drowned at the wreck of the steamship Anglo Saxon. The population along this part of the shore numbers only 157. Cape Race is distant from St. John's about 64 miles by road and about 60 miles by water. Mail weekly. Population
