Tomoka River



Today we have a picture from about 1890, and it shows a boat on the Tomoka River coming into a landing. I really like the old style of this boat. With the smoke stack in the back, and the date on the picture, it is most  likely steam powered. Notice the woman in the front is carrying a rifle.

  1. Great photo.
    Some of the mosquitoes are big enough to shoot at, at least it feels that way after they bite you.

  3. I have seen a couple of these old style boats up and down the Indian River Lagoon...with modernized engines of course....would imagine the rifle is for 'gators...

  4. Not only is she carrying a rifle, she looks about to shoot it. Another posed photo? Lovely setting!
