Tancook Community News is excited to announce a weekly “Can You Guess” contest. We are delighted to have received a collection of never-before-seen photos from our beloved annual island visitor and renowned photo-journalist, George Bellerose. Each week we will post one photo with a challenge. Thanks to Rosa for the questions.
Here is the photo for the week of Oct 2, 2017:
Many of you will remember this man but who can name the boat? Answer: “Sweet Nothing”
This photo (taken by George Bellerose in 1973) depicts early mackerel trapping technology. Mackerel is unloaded, dip net by dip net into a barrel that is hauled from boat to fish boxes on the wharf. Boxes were then brought into the Granville Gates plant in Blandford for processing.
Over the past 40 years, George Bellerose has spent time on Tancook every summer, chronicling life on this special island through the art of photography.
George will be supplying photos from the early days of his visit and we will post one now and then to see who can identify the person in the photo. Visit this page often. The next person we feature may be you!
