Floating George and Annie Warren's House, Placentia Bay
Lisa Wilson and I are just back from a trip to Arnold's Cove, to meet with their local heritage committee on a web project they are undertaking, on the theme of resettlement.
Committee member Edna Penney shared with us this great image, which would have been a fairly typical sight during the resettlement period. It shows George and Annie Warren's house, being floated from Best's Harbour (Tack's Beach) to Arnold's Cove in July 1966.
If you've got a photo of a family house being floated, or hauled across the ice, we'd love to see it. Toss us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org
