Grates Cove 2, 2003










Grates Cove 2, 2003

Grates Cove is located near Bay de Verde on the tip of the northwest Avalon Peninsula. The photos in this series were taken on two separate days during the summer of 2003.

In today's post, you will see photos of the cliffs and remnants of old fishing stages, some of which are near the top. I imagine most of the ones still standing in 2003 are gone now.


Imagine how hard the fishermen worked to survive back in the heyday of the cod fishery.

Grates Cove, 2003










Grates Cove, 2003

As promised, today I am starting another series in which I will share photos of another community that were taken in 2003.  Grates Cove is located near Bay de Verde on the tip of the northwest Avalon Peninsula.  The photos were taken on two separate days during the summer of that year.


Today's images show wide views of the town with many small boats moored in the harbour.

Bay de Verde 6, 2003





















Bay de Verde 6, 2003

This is the last post in this series.  All of the images shown over the last 6 days were taken in 2003.  I have been there a few times over the years, but on that day I walked around the town making photos and enjoyed photographing the houses and other buildings.  I was also happy to photograph the crumbling fishing stages because I expected they would not last long unless they were restored.

Because enough time has passed for people to see changes in their communities, I am planning on showing older photos of various communities around the province.  Of course, I will also share current photos as well. 


I have updated my Bay de Verde Gallery to include all the photos shared over the past week.  You can view them - http://www.lanephotography.com/cbn/baie_de_verde/baie_de_verde.htm

Bay de Verde 5, 2003























Bay de Verde 5, 2003

It's been 14 years since the photos I am sharing in this series were taken and I am certain that there have been many changes in the town of Bay de Verde since these photos were taken.


I took many photos of what was left of the fishing stages that once lined the shoreline of the harbour.  I suspect much of it is probably gone now, but I am not certain.
