Oyster Barge Skipper



Today's picture was taken in 1911 in Mobile Bay. Pictured is the skipper of an Oyster Barge. This is a great picture. I really like pictures like this of people doing real work.

  2. Great news about EAM getting out of the hospital. Our prayers are with her.

    Check out the Union Oyster House in Boston. Oldest restaurant in continuous service in the US since 1826. They have been serving up oysters for the past 186 years.

    I think I am getting the hang of reading the new verification letters. I usually get them on the first try now.

  7. I like this one very much too - and I like that it is relatively close up so we can really see something of the fisherman's character in his face.
