Vintage sepia photos of a lost industrial Newfoundland

The United Church archives has recently scanned about 850 photos from the Max Dawe collection. Max Dawe was a United Church minister who travelled around Newfoundland in a small boat in the 1930s and 1940s.

"He took some great photos," says volunteer Linda White. "Most are identified. Many not."

The photos will eventually be posted on Memorial University's Digital Archives Initiative, but you get a sneak peak here, and can help in the identification process.

If you know anything about either of the two photographs posted here, send me an email at ich@heritagefoundation.ca.
