  Edward Murphy
My husband, Edward Murphy. Edward's very environmentally friendly. There's a beach, or landwash, as we call it. He cleans this place from end to end every spring. Every person in Little Bay, Marystown, really feels pride in his work. He was presented with this sign by the Burin Peninsula Chamber of Commerce (BPCOC).

Thanks to the people of Little Bay for interest enough to put his name forward for this.

Dear Downhome:

I thoroughly enjoyed reading the Summer 2014 edition of “Inside Labrador”. The pieces included were well written and very reflective of "The Big Land". Nice to see this part of NL getting a well deserved focus. Good on you, Downhome.

Labrador the Big Land

July 26, 2014

Dear Downhome:

I just finished reading Ron Young's most interesting article in the Aug 2014 issue of Downhome, entitled "Labrador: big in so many ways". Thanks for focusing on the splendour of that great land. I was unaware that it had been up for sale at one time; so fortunate that didn't happen.

This rug was made by my husband's grandmother, Jesse Coffin from Joe Batt's Arm, Fogo Island. I believe it was made sometime in the 1920s or 30s. I believe they were made to keep the women from going stir crazy in the long winter months! What do your readers know about these rugs?
