Pictured: Two sealers with gaffs and rifles, walking on the pack ice at Harbour Grace, ca. 1880s. The first Immaculate Conception Cathedral is visible; the Cathedral burned in 1889. The cursive description on bottom reads: “Ice view – Cathedral in Back Ground” [sic]. Photo courtesy David Myrden.
Special thanks to David, who mailed this photo to our Communications Officer all the way from British Columbia.
