Signal hill, in St. John’s NL, Canada, wikipedia image
This is signal hill in St. John’s , Newfoundland, Canada.It is a hill which overlooks the city of St. John’s, NL and Labrador, Canada.
Since mid 17th century fortifications were placed, because of its strategic placement. In 1762 the French surrendered to a British force at the battle of Signal Hill.
On 12th December 1901, the first transatlantic wireless transmission was received by Guglielmo Marconi.
The US maintained anti-aircraft guns on the hill during the second world war.
Today it’s a National Historic Site of Canada.
It’s a large well kept place where tourists and local citizens visit during the summer months. In winter high winds @ 68 mph deters most people to go there. Those who are heedless of the warning are a few, who perhaps like to dare nature. But we all know it is a futile task and in trying to be brave they are in danger of losing their lives or might be critically injured.
This was my husband’s most favorite place to visit. I was not so passionate about it. For me visiting once was enough. I felt I’d rather visit some other place that I didn’t see.
When we get some visitors we take them to signal hill, hey, we say this is a very important site, you must not miss visiting it.
I sometimes wonder, if our over enthusiasm to view a piece of history might not bode well with our guests, to be honest what else do we have to boast about ? Shopping centers , No, they have better looking ones; immediately there will be a comparison made and we’d look so silly we’d wish we could hide our faces from their sarcastic grin.
So I’ve decided to present our historic site, ‘The Signal Hill’ it’s a special place for us, St. John’s citizens.
