G’day there!

Well, it’s been another busy week here in Broadford – so much so, in fact, that Friday has come out of nowhere and I’m coming to you entirely lacking in written material for this week’s offering. But it dawned on me this morning that if a picture is worth about a thousand words, what about a video? Does that equate to a hundred thousand? I think so, which is why this week I’m putting out a “sequel” to a post I made back in January (Lights, Camera, Action: The Cradle of Confederation (1925)).

Because really, who doesn’t like sequels?

So let’s all just sit back and put our feet up, pour some whiskey (if you have it), and enjoy this little 1949 gem from British Pathe which depicts the Island’s time-honoured tradition of oyster fishing.

See you next week!

Cheers,

PEI History Guy
