This photo is of an information kiosk near the Lighthouse Interpretive Centre. The text reads, "A Place of Refue / Today, Presqu'ile's protected forest and beaches offers a sanctuary for many birds, mammals and native vegetation while providing a relaxing retreat for vacationers. / Come into the Lighthouse interpretive Centre and explore our colourful past. These isolated shores and sheltered waters were at times, an essential link to the marine transportation system of an aspiring nation. At other times, Presqu'ile became a squatter's paradise, smuggler's den and privateer's hangout." The photos on the kiosk are: "The Yellow Warbler and the Barred Owl are both regularly sighted at Presqu'ile." (Presqu'ile Park Collection), "A family of vacationers pose at the Presqu'ile Hotel, c1911" (Bud Guertin Collection), "Utilizing both speed and disguise, rumrunners ran a continuous battle to outwit the law." (Hazel Dodds). Photo looking south.
