William Perry, Woodcutter

Norman Cohn

1979, 34:00 minutes, colour, English


Mr. Perry and his wife Agnes live on a small farm in rural Prince Edward Island. Four grown children and one grandchild still live at home. Among other occupations Mr. Perry cuts wood for sale to neighbours. This portrait observes him around home in the early morning, cutting and hauling from the woods with his mare Nellie, a side trip for herring to North Rustico Harbour, and back home in the late afternoon.
