SHEEPSHEAD BAY, Brooklyn, NY – 1918
As this 1918 image proves, deep sea fishing was very popular only a few years after the first party boat sailed from this port. Each pier was soon occupied by boats, customers, and most importantly, FISH! The vessel to the right is the "DORA". She was built in 1904 at Hoboken, NJ and was operated by Captain Lou Komarek. Behind the "DORA" is the original "SEA PIGEON".
