These photos, all taken by Art Sheppard, were shared by his son, Robert. Art Sheppard was a minister for the Tancook Baptist Church during the years from 1956-1958, residing here with his wife, Neicey, and children, Carol and Robert. Robert recalls that his Dad always had his camera by his side his entire life, which was no doubt instrumental in Robert’s chosen career as a photographer in advertising. Many thanks to Robert for sharing these photos, and to his Dad, who passed away in 2015, for his love of photography and for capturing these images. We have quoted some of the memories and remarks that Robert has shared with us along with the pictures.
The last of the island sauerkraut has been packed off for this year so it seemed a fitting time to post some photos from the family of one of Tancook’s past kraut makers, Percy Langille. We thank Percy’s grandson, Robyn Langille, for sharing these photos with us.
