Visitors to Battle Harbour, located at the entrance to St. Lewis Inlet in Southern Labrador, Canada, can view many historic items such as this old fishing boat laid to rest along the shore.
Battle Harbour was once home to a salt fishery in the early 1770's, eventually leading to being the major base for cod and seal fisheries and for the commercial trade. A decline in inshore fishery took place at the beginning of the 1990's with a majority of the residents leaving the island.
After many years, Battle Harbour has been reconstructed, restoring the structures, walkways and work areas and is now open to the public.
