The Mill Girls

In the 1940s hundreds of young women from western and central Newfoundland went to the Cambridge, Ontario area to work in the linen mills. 

Heather Barrett of CBC Radio in St. John’s just released her radio documentary about these women and it can be found on this interactive piece on the CBC website, The Mill Girls
