Storyline

This film shows interesting views of St, Johns. It stands on rising ground on the north side of a land-locked harbor, the entrance to which is guarded on one side by Signal Hill, 520 feet high, and on the other by South Side Hill, 620 feet high. A view of the harbor is shown, and a panorama from Signal Hill beginning in the rugged country far away and winding its course to the city lying far below, will bear adequate testimony to the fact that the eastern shore of Canada is justly celebrated for its beauty. The city has about forty thousand inhabitants and practically monopolizes the commerce of Newfoundland, being the center of the cod, seal and whale fisheries.
