St. Pierre Harbour (1)

Artist's Description

The Islands of St. Pierre and Miquelon are a Department of France, though they are located only a few miles off the south coast of Newfoundland,Canada. Established as a fishing colony in the late 1500’s, they were apparently overlooked during the incessant French-English wars in the 1700’s and remained a French possession.
Regular boat service runs from the islands to Fortune, Newfoundland, and the islands are a really unique place to visit.
In this scene, we were pulling into the waterfront of the town of St. Pierre. The red/orange building is the Customs House. Many fishing trawlers are docked at the wharves.

July 1966
