It’s Wednesday and that means it’s time for August’s first Photo of the Week! I hope everyone had a wonderful long weekend and managed to find a little bit of time to take some photos for our Fishing the West Coast contest, which closes this Friday! Time is running out so come by either the Cannery or the Administration building to drop off your entries today! Check out this post for all the details and the entry form. Thanks to everyone who has already submitted their entries; we can’t wait to see what else comes in by Friday!
This week’s photo is a more recent one: This image was taken from a 35mm colour slide, which shows the troller “Fonzie” (left) at an unidentified fishing boat dock along the coast. There are several interesting features to note in this picture: Firstly, the troller “Fonzie” has a very unusual A-frame mast. Secondly, note the live tank to the right of the picture, possibly for storing freshly-caught ling cod. Taken by photograph Brian Gauvin in 1990, this photograph is part of the Fisheries Council of British Columbia Collection.
If you know where the photo was taken, or have any information about the other subjects, please either post a comment or email Rachel.
