Launching Lobster Boat, Maine

This image shows the now-loaded boat, with the lobster traps (known as pots) stacked on the top, as the lobsterman prepares to push off into the water.

H.J. Burrowes Company, Portland, Maine

The description states simply: OFF TO SET THE LOBSTER TRAPS

–There appear to be only two traps on board as the lobsterman pushes off, so this is a modest endeavor at best. It seems probable that the same trip will result in bringing back full traps when these are placed.

This card was used and is dated 18 August 1947.
