Early Days_ Ol'Timers by richardcgreen Early Days_ Ol'Timers by richardcgreen
I've lost track of the number of these Early Days pieces I've submitted,
but that's not important. This piece I hesitate to submit, only because it is SOOOOO
traditional. And it was rejected by a juror in a W/C show in 1995 (when it was done)
because of its Poor Composition. But, at the very least, it's historical, showing
(copying faithfully, by me) the nature of the fishing boats on Lake Superior around
1900, maybe even before. The trout were thrown in the bilge of the ship (see the large
door on the left-hand ship) and could be easily removed in great numbers. These vessels
rot away in ship graveyeards, in and around Bayfield, Wisconsin. In this case a few
sailors are keeping them clean and restored.
