How is the fishing business these days?
Just like New England fisherman, fishing and shrimping here on the Gulf Coast is a hard life. But those in the business wouldn't trade professions with for anything....
Outstanding collection of pictures. That cat perched on the pier is very brave and sure-footed. Guess he or she knows where to get fresh fish.
The gentlemen on the boat have all the "same" noses-same family?Everyone in these pictures looked so much kinder than people do today...just a different look, posture, openness about them.
While my dad gave up fishing in the early 1950's these photos could well have been tacken on his boat. The "Magellan " looked very much the same as this boat including the dory on the cabin house roof.
