Telegraph Cove - circa 1960
Telegraph Cove - circa 1960

Telegraph Cove, now a centre for tourism, fishing, and whale watching was, up until 1980, a town that centered and depended upon a sawmill. The employees lived at the cove in houses that sat on pilings driven into the mud of the cove. Their street was made of planks nailed to cross braces on the pilings. In 1960 the Cove was in its most productive period, providing much of the lumber to the central coastal communities. A bustling community, with its own school and recreation, it provided jobs for dozens of people. In May of 1997, a reunion was held and attended by people who had lived and worked at the Cove. Over 300 attended the three day reunion and this image was printed for a poster commemorating the event.
