Mouse on a Cannon

This little mouse can be seen on several different things in downtown Charlottetown. Here he stands on a cannon.

 

The cannon itself is real. It fell from a cleff near Fort Amherst. It was pulled from the harbour and brought into town. The person who salvaged the cannon planted it in the ground ouside his family's drug store at the corner of Grafton and Queen streets (now the location of the flagship Cows ice cream store). Over half of the cannon is below street level. It has served in many roles, from a place to fly a flag to a hitching post for horses.
