Poster used by Don Thurlow and other lobstermen as a way of advertising for their second job. The lobstermen would work at lobstering in the morning and take fishing parties out in the afternoon to supplement their income.

A few years later the Fishermen's Co-operative took over much of the scheduling of people who wanted to go on a fishing party. This was done on a rotation basis.
