A group of Miramichi men have launched a website of photos that chronicles sports in Mirmaichi since the late 1800’s. Miramichi Sports Photos is the result of the hard work of the following men: Don Ross, Greg Morris, Brian McCarthy, David Rogers, and Joe Breen. The website was built by Larry Lynch of L5 Media, and Nadine Drillen was the summer student who typed in all the information about the pictures.
The men have been working out of the basement of St. Michael’s Museum for the past few years, scanning and cataloguing photos, and trying to identify as many people in them as possible.
You can browse the photos by category, or do a search for a person or team’s name to find matches. The site also encourages readers to identify anyone in the photos that they know by leaving comments.
You can order prints online, or contribute photos to the site as well.
Check it out. It’s quite impressive.
