…Fisherman and fisherwomen, that is.
I bought this photo at an antique store because it was so intriguing to me with its family, hotel and strings of fish. I imagine the hotel has been demolished in the century since this was taken, but who knows.
Since it turned up in a central Ohio antique store, I assume the photo might have been taken in Ohio, or at least along one of the Great Lakes shores. The fish depicted look like some sort of freshwater panfish (looks like they were really biting that day, too!). Thinking it might have been a hotel somewhere up along Lake Erie, I e-mailed a few of the historical societies in those areas, but so far no one’s had any information.
I hope someone can help me put a name with it. If anyone can help me ID the hotel and, even better, the people, I’d be grateful. I’d like to pinpoint just when it was taken, too.
Up for a challenge? Go for it! Feel free to pass the photo around online – just leave the text above and below the photo, please.
