"The Dwarfing Bell"

 Bell Island can be very dwarfing near it's cliffs. Under this monstrosity are mine shafts extending out into Conception Bay. Her innards were very sought after during the Great War when iron was add a premium fueling the war machine in Europe, namely Britain and Germany. This endeavour brought the Germans to the very shores of Bell Island when an iron ore freighter was sunk by a U-Boat off her South Western end. Could possibly be the only German attack on North American soil.......water I guess.
