Boyde Beck - Isabel Expedition

IsabelExpedition4.jpgYou may have heard on our news today that the research around the doomed Franklin Expedition has renewed interest in PEI's early shipuilding history. Sir John Franklin's expedition to find a northwest passage disappeared in the Arctic Ocean in 1845. A few years later a ship built in St.Peters was sent to the Arctic on an expedition to find the lost Franklin expedition ships. Boyde Beck is Mainstreet's historian and an expert on PEI's shipbuilding history. You can see more on Isabel on our website cbc.ca/pei
