Narrative

off W side of Hurd Peninsula, Livingston Island. The name Sallys Cove was applied by Weddell in 1820-23 to a cove lying SW of Johnsons Dock (q.v.) (Weddell, chart, [?1824a]). Air photography by FIDASE, 1956-57, showed no true cove in this area, but these rocks may have formed one arm of what appeared to Weddell to be a cove. Sally Rocks (APC, 1962, p.27; BA chart 1776, 19.vii.1968).
