Grand Bruit

Winter burning coal and wood
This photo is not that clear; but it shows what the Grand Bruit families had to do to get wood to burn in the kitchen stoves with their coal. In this photo, three sons of Henry Billard, George, Mike and Gerald are arriving home with two boat loads of firewood from miles up the coast. The wharf behind them is where the mailboat, from the "steamer" anchored outside the Harbour, unloaded mail and passengers. Edna Billard, George's wife gave me this photo in October 2001.
