2022 Independence Day Edition
Welcome to the 2022 Independence Day Edition of Mike's Maritime Memorabilia! Over the last eighteen years we have posted more than 2,100 vintage photos for all to enjoy and our Independence Day Edition includes 30 exceptional photographs of party fishing boats and the men behind them dating from 1950 through 2022. The photo captions illustrate some of the rich and interesting history that surrounds them and simply put, this is our fishing heritage – enjoy and celebrate it as we also commemorate our Day of Deliverance with solemn acts of devotion to God, parades, picnics, sports, music, festivities and fireworks from this time forward forever more. Special thanks go to Richie Mansfield, Nick Manzari, Sam Rescigno, Bill Ritter and Pete Sykes for generously contributing some of the fine photographs and background information for our 2022 Independence Day Edition. May God Bless America!
