Description

Faces of the Florizel On Air:
A “Living Heritage Podcast” Live Recording

In February 1918, the S.S. Florizel left St. John’s on what would be its last journey. Blizzard conditions and miscommunication between the bridge and the engine room caused the vessel to crash into the rocks near Cappahayden, Newfoundland. Of the 137 souls on board, only 44 survived.

On Wednesday, February 28th, 2018, join Heritage Foundation of NL folklorist Dale Jarvis and special guests Heather Elliott and Deanna Walter at Admiralty House Communications Museum for a live audience recording of the Living Heritage radio show and podcast to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the shipwreck. We’ll talk about the history of the S.S. Florizel disaster and the behind-the-scenes work that went into preparing the Faces of the Florizel exhibit. Guided tour of the exhibit to follow.

This is a free event, sponsored by Admiralty House Communications Museum and the Heritage Foundation of Newfoundland and Labrador. Photo of the SS Florizel courtesy Admiralty House Communications Museum.
