Hurricane Insurance

George Cousins

North Saanich,British Columbia, Canada

Artist's Description

The LaHave Islands are a group of small islands off the south-west coast of Nova Scotia, Canada,reached by a succession of back roads and narrow bridges.
Here, at the harbor of the fishing village of Bush Island, we found this two-story fisherman’s shed, complete with upper and lower entry ramps, and backing onto a wharf.Since this area is often beaten by high winds and storms, and usually at least one hurricane every year, a little insurance was felt necessary in the form of sturdy braces on both sides, undoubtedly cut from trees in the surrounding forests. And the shed with probably survive another 100 years or so.
