I hope that people will collectively be able to fill in a lot of the blanks here ..Places & people? There seems to be a lot of the Margarees, Lake Ainslie, Possibly Inverness company houses leading to the water? There is a store at the 19 minute mark that says L.D. Cameron

Those clothing and hair styles look like the 1920s more than 1940.

The drop waist dresses, bobbed hair, cloche hats and the vehicles make me believe this is more likely the 1920s. At least for some of the footage.

9:25 to 13:00 is Whycocomagh showing Skye Mtn. behind the Reservation with wig-wam construction. Panning around Whycocomagh Bay to Salt Mtn. and Indian Island, then Stewardale cemetery and MacLean Church. This church burned to the ground in 1960 and was over 100 years old at the time.
