During a recent drive across Newfoundland, I took a few minutes to snap a few pictures of Grand Falls. Since I didn't have much time, the pics are incomplete (lacking pics of Windsor, strip malls, modern housing, etc.) and not great quality, but here they are for anyone who is interested.
Grand Falls was established in 1905, with the construction of the paper mill (built by British proprietor of the Daily Mail, Alfred Harmsworth, 1st Viscount Northcliffe through his Anglo-Newfoundland Development Company Limited). Only employees of the paper company were permitted to live in the town at that time. Nearby Windsor grew up just north of Grand Falls, and today both jointly form the town of Grand Falls-Windsor, population 13,558(CA). At the time of its construction, the town grew up rapidly, and was considered to be thoroughly modern in planning. (The community was built based on the theories of Ebenezer Howard and the Garden city movement.)
The first one is an aerial from heritage.nf.ca.
Now to my own pics:
