Nets, Fish, and Fences - help identify these mystery photographs! #TBT

P10707 Young woman along a fence. Nets drying, looks like a riddle (wriggle) fence to the left.

The Research Centre for the Study of Music, Media, and Place (MMaP) at Memorial University is putting the final touches on a website dedicated to the folksongs collected by MacEdward Leach between 1949 and 1951 across Newfoundland and in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. We need your help to identify the people in his photo collection!

Please contact Gale at or comment below. We'll update captions here if we find out more information.

P10756 Older couple ready for an evening out (or church?). Love that bowtie!

P10777 Sailor in doorway. Note fish drying above roof.
