This ferry being at the head of the Cole Harbour Road and closer to Colin Grove than Skerry's Ferry, it may have been preferred by Louisa and her family and friends, including Thomas, for whose safe crossing on at least one occasion she uttered a prayer.
     According to Martin (p. 29), "Farmers stabled horses here, and sailed to Halifax with produce."
     The painting has suffered damage. Below is a sketch of the painting, made by Nina Purcell in 1950.
