Photo #1 looks south at an angle from off the southern end of Fort Cove, well to the north of these cliffs; it shows clearly some rock stacks along the shore below the cliffs of “Wreck Brook Mountain”; this is the same area as is seen on the previous page, though I am very hard put to tell exactly where, as I cannot find a good match with this photo and those of the previous page. The hill seen at the centre of this photo and the shorter one at the far right are unquestionably the two lower foothills below (west of) Polletts Cove Mountain, seen on the following pages; the ridge beyond the smaller hill at the far right is that on the south side of the Polletts Cove River; and the cliffs at the far right of this photo are those of the northern foothill, so this view must necessarily be along the shores below “Wreck Brook Mountain”. My best guess is that this is north of the “big scrape”, around the left of photo #2 on the previous page.
Photo #2, from a bit further south, shows the same scene as photo #1. How vertical the fractures in the cliffs appear here! And one would certainly think that boulder right of centre on top of a sheared cliff would be easy to find, as it stands out in every photo on this page! Yet neither matches what I see along this coast. Under magnification, the indentation in the cliff at the edge of the meadow at the far right of photo #2 does match that seen just to the right of the mouth of the brook in photo #4 on the previous page, including the small grass-topped crown at the edge of the cliffs, but that is the only good match I can find in these two sets of photos.
Taken from yet further north than either of the previous photos, photo #3 has been significantly cropped to bring out the rock pillars in better detail. The pillar in the dead centre and the recumbent rock formation to the right are clearly detached from the cliffs themselves. I’d have been quite happy to have called this The Chimney were it in the location the topographical map specifies!
Photo #4 is another view of the coastal cliffs below “Wreck Brook Mountain”. From this vantage point, the point at the end of the southern arm of “Wreck Brook Mountain” is about a third of the way in from the right; as will be seen on the next page, a small cove hides behind that point where an unnamed brook comes down from the plateau. This too should suffice to locate these pillars definitively, but I can still find no good match in the photos on the previous page. If you have better luck, please let me know!
As a final confirmation of the location of the rock pillars, photo #5 shows more of the coast south of the rock pillars, extending most of the way to Polletts Cove—the long low bank at the far right rises above the beach at Polletts Cove (the mouth of the conjoined Blair and Polletts Cove Rivers is at the far right, outside the scope of this photo).
