Isle Aux Noix

| View Cart ⇗ | Info

Isle Aux Noix, in the Sorel. The sketch was made from the pilot’s room of the steam-boat, about half a mile above the island, looking east-northeast. The landing is a little beyond the trees on the right, where sentinels are stationed. The island is small, and wholly occupied by the military works. A broad fen extends some distance from the northern side, and the wild ducks that gather there afford fine amusement for sportsment during the hunting season.
