Snapshots of Clayoquot Sound 1914 -1934

Harold Monks arrived in Clayoquot Sound in spring 1914 and began ranching on Vargas Island before going to war. On his return, he lived in Tofino and spent summers fishing for the cannery, and winters on the Life Boat crew. Harold was an avid photographer of local people and kept these snapshots in his black-paged photo album with tidy white captions. Click on the photo to see full image and captions.
