Description

"Digby is about three-quarters of the way between Halifax and Yarmouth, and lies opposite Saint John, a three hours' sail across the Bay of Fundy. It is a favorite summer resort, providing excellent bathing, boating, and sea-fishing. Digby is also extensively engaged in fisheries, and gives its name to one popular delicacy -- the "Digby Chiken," a kind of small herring. The picture shows thousands of fish drying -- pollock, haddock and cod."
