Harold Wrege, EFFORT, Brooklyn, NY – 1952
Harold Wrege is shown clearing salt ice from deck of the "EFFORT" at Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn, NY after returning from a day of Cod fishing during the winter of 1952. Harold Wrege was the cousin of Captain Fred Wrege and worked the deck of the "EFFORT" at the time. Later, he would be the captain and part owner of the "ELMAR" and a few years after that, he also operated the "CHIEF"; both boats sailed from Sheepshead Bay.
