In the ghost town of Ocean Falls, local legend “Nearly Normal” Norman Brown has spent years sifting through the ruins, gathering an eclectic record of everyday life from the decades before the pulp mill and the BC government pulled the plug on the town’s existence. His museum, lovingly assembled and maintained above the old shipyard, is a monument to the thousands of people who once lived there. If you’re ever in Ocean Falls, be sure to track down Norman (that will be easy) and ask him to show you the museum.
Among the myriad objects in the collection, I found these lovely glass bottles, standing on a windowsill. They seemed to move to a rhythm that time has not erased.
