Them Days magazine was established in 1975 to record, document, research and publish the oral, visual and written history of Labrador.
In addition to the magazine, Them Days Labrador Archives began in 1984 with the arranging of researched material into an archives. Much of the material organized has been donated by individuals, businesses and organizations interested in helping to preserve the rich cultural history of Labrador.
