EVELYN, Brooklyn, NY – 1912
A 1912 advertising postcard for Captain 'Jake' Martin’s "EVELYN" from Martin Brothers Dock, Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn, NY. Built in 1892 at Nyack, NY as the private steam yacht “LINTA”, she was purchased by Captain Martin in 1911 and was the first converted steam yacht to fish as a party boat from Sheepshead Bay. The back of the postcard proclaims she was the "fastest steamer from Sheepshead Bay" and fished daily at 8:00 AM "For the Deep Sea Banks, Cholera Banks, Long Beach, Klondyke Banks, Long Branch, Farms, or 17 Fathoms – when in season."
