Blue Nose - CANADA - 1921



Bluenose was a Canadian schooner from Nova Scotia, a celebrated racing ship (and hard-working fishing vessel) and a symbol of the province. The name "bluenose" originated as a nick-name for Nova Scotians from as early as the late eighteenth century. The original Blue Nose was built in Smith & Ruth land's shipyard located in Lunenburg, New Scotland and Canada in 1921 and was commanded by the courageous captain Angus Walters of Lunenburg.
