Herbert Washington (foreground) and Charles Bullen Dunn (background) sit in the bow of two canoes on the shores of Ragged Lake in August of 1887; seated in the stern are their two guides.

Game laws at the end of the 19th century – meant to attract wealthy out-of-state sportsman -- allowed John Dunn and his sporting companions to combine hunting and fishing in the summer months.
