Clayoquot Sound 1914 -1934

Grandpa Harold Monks arrived in the Tofino-area in spring 1914 and began ranching on Vargas Island and fishing for the cannery before going to war. He was an avid photographer of local people and kept these snapshots in his black-paged photo album with tidy white captions. These photos capture scenes from the Tofino area in 1914-1934.
