This spectacular photo captures the hustle and bustle of "The Bay" during its heyday era circa 1925. Taken at the western end of Sheepshead Bay Brooklyn, NY, this photo shows (from left to right) the "VELOCITY", the "EFFORT II", the "ELMAR II" leaving for a day's fishing and in the foreground, the "SEA PIGEON" is at her berth. The white footbridge between Manhattan Beach and Sheepshead Bay and marking the western end of the Bay can be seen in the background.
