life is reminiscing
Take a walk down memory lane
Images of people, communities and events of bygone years are few and far between, making them all the more precious today as we strive to instill a sense of history in our youth and the generations to come. Many of our loyal readers have recognized this need and have submitted old photographs to Downhome magazine from their personal collections. Scroll through to see these images for yourself and take a walk down memory lane.

A picture of the old Anglican Church in Bay L'Argent, Fortune Bay. The church was torn down and a new one was built in a different location. A playground now sits where the church used to be. The oil drums (that you can see a bit behind the church) have also been torn down, but the Govt. Wharf and Store (under the cliff to the left) still remains.

This is a photo of my husband's,(Paul Lynch) grandfather, Arch Lynch. This photo was taken in front of his home and Graham Lynch's (Arch's son) 57 Chev. They lived in Spoon Cove, Newfoundland. Take notice of the cellar in the background. You don't see these much any more; or not in use anyway. Graham loved his dad and his 57 Chev!
