Modern-day replica of John Cabot's ship, the Matthew.
Although there is no contemporary 15th-century depiction of the Matthew, this historical replica was built for the "Cabot 500" anniversary celebrations in Newfoundland during the summer of 1997. This photo shows the Matthew during its call at St. John's Harbour.
