About: Coal Mines Of Cape Breton (Part 2)
I lived across from #26 at the end of Denver Street. I remember Feb. 24th- 1979 like it was Yesterday, It was a Sad Sad day on A Saturday Morning. I am Proud to be From Glace Bay, A Mining Town at the Northeast tip of Cape Breton.. "Cape Breton Proud"..
These guys deserve mad Respect!
Billy Doucette (Jr.) is my cousin.. he looks the same as when I last saw him as a young kid ..
Joey was a wee guy when I last saw him as well..
I love these pics of our families that worked in the mines. I was wondering if anyone had any pics of my grandfather. I never met him, and all I know if that his name was Ken LeBlanc, and may have went by the names, Joe or Joseph White, or any combination. He worked in the mines in the 40's to late 50's. He was approx, 5'6 inches tall, dark hair, and apparently, a good looking acadian french man :) Any pics or info would be appreciated!! I believe he lived in River Hebert at the time. Thanks!
