My wife and I enjoyed our visit to your picturesque village in August 2016. I wish we had allowed more time to explore. Alan Doyle's memoir "Where I Belong" about the joys (and challenges) of growing up in Petty Harbour did provide some insight into life in a Newfoundland fishing village, at least as it was in the 1970s and 80s.
I am looking for the history of some of the people of Petty Harbour, in particular the Bulleys and Angels before 1825. This is a nice little site I think that it would benefit from expanding the history section. I was surprised to learn that Petty Harbour had the first hydro electric generation in Newfoundland.
