Frobisher Bay - Other  Photos

1960: Frobisher Bay - Department of Transport - Married Quarters. (From the collection of D.S.K. Blackmore. Submitted by Donna Loewen)

1995: The awesome tides and the shallow harbour at Iqaluit provide some dramatic scenes as evidenced in the two lower photos. Here the MV Lady Franklin is off-loading cargo in Iqaluit during the annual sea-lift. At high tide, a barge was used to ferry the cargo to shore. 
At low tide the trucks drove right alongside the grounded ship. 
Stern view of the MV Lady Franklin. 
The photographer of the photos in this table is unknown.
