1997 Show Poster

The Mail Boat

Bags of mail are exchanged at the wharf of a small lakeside tourist hotel, the Wawbeek in Melvin Village, circa 1948. Nosing up to the dock is the U.S. Mail and excursion boat Tonimar, a converted 1926 43′ Hubert Johnson cruiser. A fisherman returns in a canvas covered, cedar strip Old Town skiff with a 5 hp. Johnson outboard. Tied up in the foreground, a 1940 19′ Gar Wood Deluxe Runabout.
