Remembering the Hant's Harbour Post and Telegraph Office

One of the projects Heritage NL has been working on involves the old one-room post office building in Hant's Harbour, Trinity Bay (shown above).

Earlier this week, I sat down for a chat with 93-year-old Clarence Snook, the former postmaster and telegraph operator who worked out of this building in the 1940s and '50s.

When I arrived, Mr. Snook had written out some of his memories for me, which you can read here in pdf format.

If you have a memory of the old Hant's Harbour post office, send me an email at Or, even better, send me a postcard at PO Box 5171, St. John's, NL, A1C 5V5!

When aunt Melina Critch worked at the post office years ago, if there wasn’t any mail come for anyone she would say how she was sorry.
