Heart's Content













Heart's Content

Heart's Content is located in Trinity Bay South along the Baccalieu Trail.

Today I am starting a new series featuring photos from Heart's Content that were taken in 2003.  Today I am sharing images of the outside of the Cable Station which  is a museum celebrating the first permanent telegraph cable connecting Europe and North America.  The quote below gives a little more detail.


"In July 1866, after nine years and several unsuccessful attempts, the first permanent telegraph cable connecting Europe and North America was hauled ashore at Heart's Content. The cable station is a time capsule of the communication technology that connected us all right up to the 1960's."

Comments are welcome!

Feel free to share with family and friends.
