Annapolis Royal in Annapolis County, Nova Scotia — The Atlantic Provinces
Le Quai de la Couronne
Since the 1740s, three wharves have been built where the ruins of the Queen’s Wharf now lie. Everything the fort needed was landed on the wharf: troops, provisions, weapons and much more. It served the needs of the military until the garrison was withdrawn in 1854.
Over the years, the wharf was redesigned and reconstructed as required and continued to be used by local residents into the 1900s. The ruins before you date to around 1906, when the wharf was last rebuilt.
Depuis les années 1740, trois quais sont construits là oû se trouvent maintenant les ruines du quai de la Couronne. À l’époque, tout ce dont le fort a besoin arrive à cet endroit: soldats, provisions, armes et tant d’autres choses. Le quai répond aux besoins de l’armée jusqu’au retrait de la garnison en 1854.
Au fil des années, le quai est redessiné et reconstruit en fonction des besoins, et les gens de l’endroit continuent à s’en servir jusque dans les années 1900. Les ruines que se trouvent devant vous remontent â environ 1906, époque où le quai est reconstruit pour la dernière fois.
