Book Description
Of Boats on the Collar: How It Was In One Newfoundland Fishing Community by Hilda Chaulk Murray will stimulate the memories and stir the emotions of coastal Newfoundlanders and Labradorians everywhere. On the surface the setting is Elliston and the surrounding area. But those of us who remember this province as it used to be will recognize that this book is a microcosm of our province’s whole coastal area and olden times.” – From the Foreword by Otto Tucker

Herein lies the story of Elliston, Newfoundland, from its early settlement by planters from Bonavista who came for cod, to the present day, when fishing is no more. It describes where the people lived in each section of the community, where their fishing rooms, homes, and gardens were, the early boats used in Elliston, the methods they used for catching cod, how the fish were handled in the stage and on the flake, the motorboats and their builders, the tools used in boatbuilding, and how boats were built.
