In 1997, the anniversary of the discovery of Newfoundland by John Cabot, The Matthew visited Placentia and I went there to take photos. I am sharing a few this morning that show the crowd that was there.
1997 was the 500th anniversary of John Cabot's discovery and a replica of The Matthew sailed from Bristol England to Bonavista. There were media from all over and as the ship sailed around the province, it made stops where people celebrated.
If you would like to view the photos taken on June 24, 1997 in Bonavista, feel free to check this link:
