Newfoundland Airport Construction 1936 - 1939

  1. The below pictures show some of the history of "Good ole Gander" from its conception as NFLD Airport in the mid 1930's, the Canadian Military renamed it "Gander" in 1941. The old townsite is almost no more, but for us Ganderites who lived there, we remember the busy airport, going to schools and Saturday matinees at the Star Theater. Although we can not revisit actual structures, some of the simplest pictures bring back some of the fondest memories. For a real flavour of life on the old townsite, and to see how the "first wave" of original Ganderites remember their early days.

They were the luckiest ones!<br>
