A person with the first name of Goodwin photographed a Round Pond fishing fleet off the coast of the Pemaquid Peninsula. Initially, the image was captured as an ambrotype, followed by production of a tintype copy (shown here). Round Pond, a village in Bristol shares its name with the adjacent body of water, which empties into Muscongus Sound.
