Random Passage 2

Random Passage 2

Today's photos from the Random Passage Movie Set also make me think about what life was like for the early settlers on the island of Newfoundland.  The tiny outdoor toilets scattered throughout the village are quite a contrast to the bathrooms we have today.  I remember visiting my grandparents in Winterton, Trinity Bay and having to use an outhouse with an Eaton's catalogue for toilet paper.  That was the 1950's and they didn't have electricity or running water there either.  The early settlers didn't have paper of any sort ... think about that!

The homes in Random Passage are all made of logs with moss packed between them to keep the wind, rain and snow out of their living quarters - much different than the well-insulated homes we have today.

Like their homes, the tools they had were also very basic.  You will find more photos on my Blog today.

Feel free to share today's photos with family and friends
