Hauling in Nets, Maine

The same man shown in the previous picture with lobster traps is now shown here with more typical fishing nets as he pulls them up into his dory.

H.J. Burrowes Company, Portland, Maine

The description states simply: PULLING THE NETS

–It is not clear what type of fish he is hoping to catch in this image, as the net is empty and there is no evidence of fish in the boat. Perhaps this was a posed photo close to shore just to serve as a sample.

This image likely dates from the 1940s.
