As the summer nears its end, the harbor of St. Anthony swarms with people who wish to catch enough cod fish to provide meals for the winter. They may not be fishermen, but may be teachers, mechanics or doctors. The occupation of these people does not show as they are busy jigging codfish, cleaning, salting, spreading and drying them. Gilbert Kinsella, was among those who ventured to the fishing grounds last week to catch his winter meals. Found at this wharf, on the edge of the harbor, Mr. Kinsell spread his “rounders” onto his flake. - NORTHERN PEN ARCHIVES
