Anthony B. Dickinson and Chelsey W. Sanger

Liverpool University Press

Research in Maritime History LUP

  • This book is both a study of the wider presence of the whaling industry in Newfoundland and Labrador between 1898 and 1972, and a comprehensive case study of the 'Ellefsen Papers' and the Aquaforte whaling station
  • Aquaforte was the only entirely Norwegian-owned factory in Newfoundland at the turn of the century, and one of the only whaling companies to retain all company records, making it an invaluable resource for maritime historians
  • The book reproduces numerous maps, photographs, lists, and tables
