Gordon Boulter worked for Maritime Packers for the majority of his working life, starting when he was a teenager. For many years following his retirement he made a daily pilgrimage from the town of Pictou where he lived to Caribou Harbour, the lobster factory site. In bad weather he parked at the wharf to spend time observing the comings and goings. During good weather he walked the beach from Caribou Provincial Park to Monroe's Island. He was such a fixture (and inspiration) that his friends put a sign on one of the points of land on Munroe's Island announcing "Gordon's Point".
Gordon collected an extensive archive of factory images. Gordon learned to drive trucks as a young man working at Maritime Packers and one of his fondest memory was his first assignment to drive a shipment of live lobsters to Boston markets.
