Contributed by Westport Island History Committee


Lawrence Colby, Eugene Cromwell, a young boy and Charles Colby, Jr., of Westport Island, all dressed in their Sunday finest, show off some alewives.

The group was probably fishing at the Nequasset Pumping Station in Woolwich, where Charles worked. Lawrence and Charles were brothers; and Eugene was their cousin.
