The Battery is a small neighbourhood within the city of St. John’s, Newfoundland. It sits on the entrance of the north side of the harbour snugged into the steep cliffs of Signal Hill. It has been described as an ‘outport within the city‘ and is noted for its steep slopes, colourful houses, and its importance as a battery for the defence of St. John's Harbour in both World Wars.
In this reproduction the ‘Scademia‘ (a tourist schooner)sails past the rocky shore for visitors on board to experience a first hand view of this unique place.
This is a reproduction of the original watercolour painting and the framing is handcrafted by the artist.
