From the Heritage Archives we present this sample from the 16mm film collection of the late Mr. Martin Bourne, former resident of Clarenville in the 1950s. Mr. Bourne who operated the first movie theatre in our town was also a filmmaker who shot colour films around the Clarenville and Bonavista area. His son, Larry donated the film prints to Heritage in July 2014. Stephen Bonnell, Society President and also a filmmaker himself, took the time to digitize the prints. Enjoy!

Quips and Quotes:

I have but one lamp by which my feet are guided, and that is the lamp of experience. I know no way of judging the future but by the past.

Listen to our conversation with Mr. John Stanley of George's Brook who worked at the Newfoundland Hardwoods Plant from 1946 to 1979. An interesting account of what life was like back then in Clarenville.
