Cod Fishery - 1950's
My father had a keen interest in family and photography . He captured his three sons, the "fishermen", at a time when the cod fishery was the livelihood for most families in rural Newfoundland. This nostalgic photo was taken in the late 1950's when we were visiting Uncle Bill and Aunt Rene in Long Beach, Trinity Bay . We were three brothers - John, Paul and Mike, one hot summer long ago. Incidently, I'm on the left, with the codfish.
