Lovell's 1871
Provincial Business Directory
The chief town in the district of Trinity, situated on the north side of Trinity Bay. The town is built at the foot of large hill, on a harbor pre-eminent for picturesqueness. The harbor is, next to Burin, the best in the island, thoroughly sheltered from every wind. Farming is carried on to some extent, more especially on the Southwest and Northwest Arms. This town was at one time of considerable importance. It is a post town and port of entry. The Circuit court holds a session here every autumn, and a magistrate's court sits daily. It is the packet station for the mails for Bonavista and places further north. Distant from St. John's by steamer fortnightly, 63 miles, fare $4. A ferry plies between the town and the north side daily. Mail weekly. Population
