Biographical history

Them Days magazine was established in 1975 to record, document, research and publish the oral, visual and written history of Labrador.

In addition to the magazine, Them Days Labrador Archives began in 1984 with the arranging of researched material into an archives. Much of the material organized has been donated by individuals, businesses and organizations interested in helping to preserve the rich cultural history of Labrador.

Custodial history

Scope and content

The collection consists of photographic copy negatives donated to the archives, copied from donated and borrowed photographic prints and original negatives made by THEM DAYS staff and others.

The photographs have been arranged geographically using a system involving one letter followed by a six-digit code. The letter codes are arranged north to south (A is Killinek to Ramah; Z is Forteau to L'Anse-au-Clair). Photographs from outside of Labrador but related to it are classified as "Miscellaneous". Negatives include images of Inuit, Innu, Metis, settlers, agriculture, clothing, furniture, sports, drama, housing, animals, landscapes, fishing, hunting, trapping, crafts, dwellings, tools, churches, transportation, toys and games, aviation, schools, dignitaries, visitors, medicine, International Grenfell Association, Moravian missionaries, clergy, musicians, wildlife, military installations and personnel.
