    The wreck of the MV Ithaca sits just outside Bird Cove, 12 miles east of Churchill, high and dry when the tide is low and completely surrounded by water when the tide is in. I have several scenic pictures of Hudson Bay featuring this ship.

    According to Lloyds of London, (the company insuring the Ithaca) it was a British flag steamship, built in 1922 in Three Rivers, Quebec. It was bound for Rankin Inlet to deliver 30 tons of equipment, including 2 generators and plywood panels for the Department of Transport. Its right rudder broke in an eighty mile an hour gale and it floundered near Bird Cove on Sept 14, 1960.
