This exhibition has only been made possible by the help and assistance of many people.  They include those who loaned us precious items, and those who helped set up the exhibition, making exhibition display boards and display cases, hanging pictures, making fire screens and the many other tasks that were required.  The information panels would not be so informative or as interesting without the wonderful photographs which we have used with kind permission from a variety of organizations and individuals.  Last but not least we have to thank Ralph Getson - Curator of Fisheries Museum of the Atlantic Lunenburg for his fantastic knowledge, generous assistance and patience over the last 8 months as the text of the exhibition took shape.

Thank you all.
