Artist's Description

Herring Cove is a tiny community on the shores of the North Atlantic Ocean, about 20 miles south of Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada.
John Salusbury tried farming there in 1750 but was unsuccessful. The first permanent settlers arrived in 1790 and many of the present inhabitants are direct descendents of these Irish-Catholic pioneers.

On November 24, 1797, the frigate HMS Tribune ran aground on nearby shoals. Of the 250 passengers and crew, only 12 survived. The first two were saved by 13-year old Herring Cove resident Joe Cracker who rescued them in his small dory. There is a monument to Cracker at nearby Tribune Head which is named after the wreck.
A narrow but relatively deep natural harbour makes a fine place to shelter fishing boats, and there is a government and many private wharves, as shown in this photo. Being close to the urban centre of Halifax, the community is gradually moving away from depending upon fishing.
The immediate area offers sweeping panoramic views over the ocean and the approaches to Halifax Harbour.
