Captain Farquhar

Captain James Augustus Farquhar

According the placard nearby, Captain Farquhar was a Nova Scotian, master mariner, salvor, sealer, and ship owner.  His business and wharf were located a few yards from where the current Maritime Museum of the Atlantic is located.  He must have been a very prominent business man in Halifax, to have his statue  standing in the museum.
