Summary

Photograph shows a framed map, "Known Wrecks on Sable Island compiled from official reports by S. D. McDonald, F.C.S." (probably the 1890 edition) with a large number of ships indicating locations of shipwrecks around Sable Island, Nova Scotia. The map in the photo is blurred and details are not legible.
Title from item.
Caption continues: A glance at the map will show that the island has well earned its sobriquet "The Graveyard of the Atlantic."
