Victor's Big Fish
Prominent Canadian photographer, Robert E. Holloway, photographed little Victor Crowley and these two massive codfish under the Salt Store in Battle Harbour. The photographer noted that the larger fish measured 5 feet, 5 inches and weighed 60 lbs. Today, this image is hailed as a poignant symbol of the once mighty Newfoundland and Labrador cod fishery.
