Moosonee pictures taken before 2008

Miscellaneous pictures of Moosonee, Ontario taken before 2008. Moosonee is a small town located on the Moose River near the south end of James Bay in Northeastern Ontario, Canada. It is the northern terminus of the Ontario Northland Railway. Although the Moose River at Moosonee is relatively shallow, Moosonee is still a port for the shipment of goods further north. In the winter, trucks can travel on the winter road to Fort Albany, Kashechewan and Attawapiskat, communities along the West Coast of James Bay. In the summer barges make the trip to those places and others.
Across the river from Moosonee is Moose Factory Island, the site of the oldest English settlement in Ontario.
