||Wrecks & Relics|
|This is what's left of a coal barge which was discarded and beached in Wreck Cove, McNab's Island, Halifax Harbour.
As I hear several of these coal barges were abandoned and wrecked in 1959, when a company was changing from coal to oil.
The top of this ship was stripped off later for scrap metal.
There are quite a few wrecks in wreck cove, some are of old wooden vessels that are now under the water and mostly deteriorated.
