The Outbuilding is on the site of the Old Britex plant in Centrelea, Nova Scotia. Build in the early 1960s it produced elastic textiles mostly for the garment industry. At its peak it employed 240 people. It closed in 2004 as a consequence of the collapse of the domestic Canadian garment industry and change in US tariff law.
The Red Shed is located in Seal Cove on Grand Manan, a large island just off the New Brunswick coast and not far from the U.S. border. Fishing and dulse harvesting are the major industries on the island. The buildings in Seal Cove which were formally used to smoke herring are now used to store gear for the lobster industry.

Two of the images are panoramas from Herring Cove Provincial Park, which is located in New Brunswick on Campobello Island. Just over the border from Lubec, Maine the island overlooks Passamaquoddy Bay on the West, and the Bay of Fundy to the East. The third image is from Rocky Harbor on Newfoundland’s west coast. Behind the water slide is an inlet of the larger Bonne Bay with Gros Morne Mountain a little further in the distance. Gros Morne national park, a UNESCO world heritage site, has its headquarters in Rocky Harbor.
