News­pa­per­man glimpses The ‘Twin Towns’ — Part 7

The Gulf News (Port aux Basques) - - EDITORIAL -

The store now oc­cu­pied by this firm was built in 1938. To­day the store has a staff of twenty-five peo­ple, and the fil­let­ing plant gives em­ploy­ment to a num­ber that ranges from twenty-five to sixty in ac­cor­dance to the needs of the firm’s fishery oper­a­tions. Two mo­tor trucks, a horse, and a fleet of mo­tor­boats of var­i­ous sizes are in con­stant op­er­a­tion. In ad­di­tion to th­ese about twenty pri­vately owned mo­tor­boats are en­gaged in fish­ing for the Bat­tiste plant and buy their sup­plies from the firm’s store.

Now I have come to the end of my story about the busi­ness places vis­ited dur­ing my stay at Twin Towns. I had planned to visit other places of like in­ter­est but the un­cer­tain­ties of travel pre­vented my do­ing so.
