Collective Memories Monday - Gary Barnes, Leatherworker



In 2012, Nicole Penney and I conducted some research around Newfoundlanders who worked high steel.

One of the intriguing people we met as part of the project was Gary Barnes, a leatherworker and harness maker, who makes leatherwork for those working high steel.

In this interview, Gary Barnes discusses making leather works for high steel such as harnesses, frogs, and belts. Listen to the interview here or visit Gary's website here and check out his work.
