Twentieth-Century Shore-Station Whaling in Newfoundland and Labrador
Modern shore-station whaling on Canada's eastern shores developed with the spread of Norwegian-dominated whaling from local areas where stocks that had been depleted by new hunting technologies to more productive locations in the North Atlantic and elsewhere. Twentieth-Century Shore-Station Whaling in Newfoundland and Labrador adds to a growing number of regionally specific case studies that collectively illustrate the complex nature of the history of global whaling. Dickinson and Sanger further demonstrate how participants in the industry were instrumental in developing other whaling initiatives, including those in British Columbia.

Of all the items I have read about whaling, I have never seen an article about the two headed whale which was taken at the whaling station in Hawkes Harbour in the spring of 1950. I have pictures and a full write up by the Canadian whaling inspector, should was there at the time. I knew him well.
