 Today in Island History

On October 25 in Island history...

1919 Cardigan merchant John A. Macdonald's attempt to resurrect the long-dead Island shipbuilding industry attracts a lot of attention. A large crowd watches the launch of the three-masted schooner Barbara Macdonald, his second vessel in as many years. She costs $30,000. Six weeks later she is lost off the coast of Newfoundland on her maiden voyage.
