Newfoundland is a large Canadian island off the east coast of the North American mainland, and the most populous part of the Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador. The province's official name was also "Newfoundland" until 2001, when its name was changed to "Newfoundland and Labrador". Newfoundland was organized as a colony in 1825, was self-governing from 1855 to 1934, and held dominion status from 1907 to 1949. In late 1948, the population of Newfoundland voted in favour of joining Canada as a province, which it did the following year, making it the youngest province in Confederation.
Poole is a large coastal town and seaport in the county of Dorset, on the south coast of England. It is a tourist resort, and today has a population of roughly 140,000 people.
This collection contains a book, "Poole and Newfoundland", compiled from a series of articles published by F.W. Mathews which traces the development of economic connections and trade between the Port of Poole, England, and Newfoundland from the 1570s to 1933.
