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."
