One of the most iconic pieces of history in Conception Bay North is crumbling away.

A portion of the S.S. Kyle, the last member of the Newfoundland Alphabet Fleet, has collapsed, and the damage was noticed by many this morning (April 15).

This photo was taken this morning. The white structure that sits in front of the smoke stack has fallen in on itself.

More to come.
