Product Description

In the 1950's and early 1960's many remote Newfoundland outport communities were forced to move to more accessible locations under a government program called Resettlement.

Hundreds of Newfoundlanders who had built their homes alongside their grandfathers and fathers, refused to abandon them and rebuild. So, by barge, boat, blood and sweat, they moved. Across bays and around capes family homes were floated to their new foundations and new beginnings.

This photograph shows Mr. Malcolm Rogers house being towed, during the course of its relocation from Silver Fox Island to Dover, Bonavista Bay, Newfoundland, Canada.

Photographer: Mr. B. Brooks. August 1961.
