Photo: The contrasting views of Kimmirut in 1919 and 2012


In September we were excited to travel to Nunavut to screen and give presentations on the Far Fur Country project. The highlight was traveling to Kimmirut, formerly Lake Harbour where the HBC had filmed extensive scenes in 1919 for the Romance of the Far Fur Country. It was amazing to see the contrasts between what we’d seen in the footage, and how the community has grown and changed over the decades. A happy coincidence while we were in Kimmirut, the yearly sea lift arrived, bringing a shipment by barge from a cargo ship off shore, a great contrast to the archival footage of the arrival of the Nascopie to Lake Harbour in 1919.
