Photos by Harold Monks Sr. of Tofino, BC, Canada.  
    Harold arrived at Clayoquot, near Tofino in 1914 at the age of twenty one.   While working in the fishing industry he took many wonderful photos of the ships, the town and the people.
    These photos tell the story of the fishing industry, and life as it was in this once remote village on the West Coast of British Columbia.
