Pics of old home
« on: September 23, 2018, 12:42:01 PM »

These are some pic of where I grew as a kid. Sent by my friend,  I remember times like this when it was so calm  and quite it can make you think which way is up  ;D    The community was a lot smaller back in my day it's grown a lot in the past 50 yrs
The reflection ones are of along the fjord

Wow, such stark beauty.  No trees.  This part of the British isles?

No roads in and out.  Just the airstrip and no doubt very seasonal shipping.  Probably a lot of seaplane traffic when weather allows also?  Building layouts along with that all look arctic to me.  Inuit community in Canada?

You got it Don,  it is a Inuit community up Comeberland Sound, Baffin Island in the N.W.T. of Canada called Pangnirtung.

No airstrip in my day bigger  planes would come in the winter and land on the ice with skls (weather permitting.)  Summer time would be the smaller planes such as Beavers and Otters with flotations on. Supplies came in by ship once a year early spring the planes were mainly people and mail transport. It's still the same today main supplies are by ship.
Here's a couple of pics from back in the day first one of a bigger plane that came in (this is before the airstrip) both are on the ice.
The other is a Otter that came in,

Such a significantly different way of growing up than 99.5% of the rest of us would ever know.  Totally different sense of community than most of us could ever appreciate.  Does that youth still creep in to a Londoner's outlook today?

Another great example of God's wonderful glory in His creation, Pete.  Thanks for sharing pictures from where you were raised.  I grew up in the country with not many folks around but where you lived made my home look like the middle of NYC... ;D
