For Sepia Saturday, February 28, 2015

These people were marching to save the Air Base in Chatham, NB.  The base employed some civilians, plus it was a boost to the economy of the Miramichi.  This march took place in July, 1982.  This was also on the day that Gilles Villeneuve died in a crash in the Grand Prix race.  I found this photo on the site Our Miramichi Heritage Photos.  We are having a big Gathering this summer to celebrate our heritage, expecting thousands to attend, locals and those that used to be locals will all be there!  You can take the person out of the Miramichi, but you can't take the Miramichi out of the person!!!

  2. They arrive from all over, to come a marching together. I especially like the lady in front who is wearing what appears to be a materity top! A marching with baby to be too!

  3. It's amusing how the marchers all seem rather happy and casual with their protest signs resting on their shoulders. Not an angry mob, that's for sure.

  4. Wonderful photograph. If I had a pound for every banner I have carried over the years - I wouldn't need to carry a banner.

  5. We had a naval air station here in Brunswick, Maine -- and it closed several years ago; our economy took a hit, too!

  8. I guess they were smiling for the camera, but they must have been serious about wanting the base to stay. Perfect photo!

  9. I'm still so fascinated with Miramichi. It sounds like it should be in Japan.
