CHARLES DOBIE : LOCAL HISTORY
KERR-ADDISON GOLD MINES, ONTARIO

Kerr-Addison Gold Mines, Ontario,
Plaque with signatures, 1955-56

Doug Beggs says: " This photo is of a gag "Underground Fish" plaque that was given to my father, R. J. Beggs, I believe 1955-56ish, when he transferred from position as Assistant Mine Manager at Kerr to Head Office in Toronto. I can see that more than mine employees signed -- for instance Dr. Hagerman is on there. This was supposed to be a fish caught in the depths of the mine by my dad. Many, many clear signatures on there! The dorsal fin is gone from the fish, as well as a small oval sign that hung from the two screw eyes on the bottom, that "titled" the piece and its occasion. "
