DEATH IN THE BAY OF FUNDY: Things most of us don't see or know about.

DEAD ZONES

The following underwater videos were taken about 10 years ago. They show dead and dying zones in the St. Croix River Estuary adjacent to Bayside Port and Quarry. The cause? Probably a combination of local quarry activities and a 10 year period where the pulp mill in Woodland dumped highly toxic black liquor into the river. 

Odds are this was never acted upon and was ignored by all levels of government.

COMING SOON - Resource Files From Ministers Island 2006-2008

 

Ministers Island is an historic island in Passamaquoddy Bay near the town of St. Andrews, NB. The 490-acre island stands several hundred yards offshore and is accessible at low tide by a wide gravel bar suitable for vehicle travel.

The Island became famous in the late 1800s as the summer home of Sir William Van Horne, then president of the Canadian Pacific Railway. Van Horne transformed the island into a small Xanadu, sporting a sandstone mansion, Covenhoven, furnished in the most lavish late Edwardian manner. The house has 50 rooms, 17 of which are bedrooms, 11 are bathrooms and there are 11 fireplaces.

Additional developments included a livestock barn, greenhouse, windmill pump, carriage house, creamery, a bathhouse that led to the shore and much more.

A subscription will soon give you access to hundreds of photos, artwork, reference files, business documents and more that were created during the restructuring period from 2006 to 2008. 

Here's just a few samples of the hundreds of images and resources that are available.

ART - REMEMBERING ARTISTS' “SWIPE FILES” IN THE OLDEN DAYS

 

REMEMBERING ARTISTS “SWIPE FILES” IN THE OLDEN DAYS?

 Originally published by Art MacKay March 2007, Updated January 2022


Believe or don’t believe it, my art career began in the 1950s. I know it is really hard for the new guard to believe, but there really wasn’t any internet, Google image search, Pinterest, Wikimedia Commons or any of the multitude of image sites that exist today.

Heck, it was really a pure time that you missed! Back then something called “Deviant Art” would have been sold from under the counter!

When we needed a visual reference “back in the day”, we went to the library if we could, but almost
