I did a search at the Archives of Ontario database to see if I could match any of the pics you posted. Did not find any matching pics, but did find "Vintage Pic 011" in colour as posted. Since you have the B&W version, I guess I did find one of your pics.

Here is the info I have for Vintage Pic 011:

Title: Ice fishing, Lake Simcoe
Date: 1959
Place: Simcoe, Lake (Ont.)
Creator: Department of Travel and Publicity, Publicity Branch
Format: Tourism promotion photographs - 10 x 13 cm colour transparencies

This image may have originated as B&W and was then colourized for use in colour photographic advertisements.

Hey John, guess the years haven't treated me too bad after all then.

Thanks for checking the pics out Jerry. I really don't have a clue where many of mine came from. I have handled thousands of images in my volunteer work where everything is under reasonably rigid control. Not all of my own are under the same degree of control.

You may be right about 011 being colourized in your copy. The original copy I have is an RGB file but displays as B&W.

Avengere, didn't you see my rod leaning against the car? FISHING ROD that is! And Sunday best? Only a Newfie would say that.

FYI, the car is a 1957 Series 2 Wolsey 6/90, rather rare to say the least. I should have kept it, might have been worth real money today but who was to know.

Vintage Pic 014

This is my father in law, Tom Pink. Picture was taken about 1950. In the 1950ís and 1960ís we used to catch dinner, a mix of Bass and Perch, in an hour or less. We used the heavy black line of the day with a single hook and a piece of worm, no rod or reel, just hand held. From experience we knew where to go based on time of the year, time of day and the weather. All those spots were within easy rowing distance. We never caught anything big but usually came home with enough to eat. None of those spots are very productive today. I wonder what he would have thought about all the hi-tech stuff used today?

Some would say life was tougher then. Maybe so, but it was simpler and somehow I think we were happier.

I noticed the STANDARD GASOLINE crate in Vintage Pic005. This may give a clue to it's era. The following sign with similar logo is dated 1930-1946.

Update 25 Nov '11 Vintage Pic005 is dated 1930's

Origin:
Yukon Historical Fishing Archives
Ice fishing, ca. 1930ís. (YA, Claude B. Tidd Coll., #7298)

Gord, nice pic of your father in law and interesting fishing technique. I guess he would think we are crazy with our bassboats, side-imaging sonar, underwater cameras, electric trolling motors, high tech fishing rods, etc. etc. Most of this "fishing equipment" is designed to catch fishermen, not fish. But i have to say, ice fishing without my x67c just isn't the same.
