Wooden lobster traps, South Bristol, ca. 1978
Contributed by South Bristol Historical Society
In this color postcard, Lewis Kelsey Sr. shows his grandson Lewis Kelsey how to coil the lines that attach to the wooden lobster traps stacked behind them in the western Gut, South Bristol. Wood was the traditional material for lobster traps but those are no longer in use. Wooden traps have been replaced by wire traps that are easier to maintain and last longer.
