About this site
This website comes to you as the result of chance encounter in the Library
and Archives of Canada. While looking for archival footage related to
Northwestern Ontario, The Fatal Flower was re-discovered and it became
apparent that the Port Arthur Amateur Cinema Society was more than just a curiosity.
A Race for Ties and Dorothea Michell's Lady Lumberjack were known to
people in Thunder Bay, but the real significance of these two items and the
existence of much more was unknown. Ladylumberjack.ca is a website devoted
to the silent films of the Port Arthur Amateur Cinema Society and the people behind
them. It is intended to provide visitors with historical information,
educational resources about a unique part of Canada's film history.
For any inquiries about the project or the website, please contact Ron Harpelle (email@example.com)
