title Some of My Experiences at Sea, Part One
creator Prince Edward Island Museum
subject Hemphill, John
subject Prince Edward Island Museum
description Nearly 60 years ago Frederick William Wallace urged Maritimers to learn more about "the brave days of wooden ships." "Fourth place among the shipowning nations," he wrote, "building famous vessels and breeding a class of daring and resourceful seamen who are still a legend among seafarers in British and foreign ships, the Maritime Provinces of Canada seem to have forgotten a part of their history of which they should be inordinately proud." While in recent years much material on shipbuilding and shipping has been gathered by maritime historians, and displayed in museums (such as our own Green Park and the new Maritime Museum of the Atlantic in Halifax), few first-hand accounts exist of the lives of our "daring and resourceful seamen."
