Many books on scuba diving have been published over the course of time, almost since the beginning of the scuba era. The Scuba News Canada will post these “nostalgia” books considered a “blast from the past” on a regular basis, and we want you, our readers, to make suggestions of “older nostalgia diving books” you have enjoyed, or believe our readers will. We will publish it and add your social media/website link to the article if you send us the proposal. Contact us.
The SS Anglo Saxon was an iron screw steamship owned by the Montreal Ocean Steamship Company that was wrecked on the Newfoundland Coast (Chance Cove) on April 27, 1863, with a large loss of life. About 300 people were thought to have perished, and some were buried on the beach nearby. The remains of those lost were reburied inland after the beach cemetery was dug up. The beach was being washed away by rising sea levels.
