One of my great uncles (my grandmothers uncle), was a fisherman who lived in a house boat somewhere in the rivers of Monmouth county. I always wondered what it was like back then. Maybe that first picture shows it. To this day my grandmother will not eat seafood, said she had it too much as a child. Oh by the way, in addition to being a fisherman, he was also a rumrunner :beers:

 

Great pictures, thanks for sharing.

Formerly a dog racing track, made in to a 1/5 mile paved oval (6/25/49 - 1951)
