Maine Grind to Exhibit Historic Fishing Photos

Soundings.com: Commercial fishing in New England is the theme of an exhibit of historic photography now on display at The Maine Grind in Ellsworth, Maine. “Images from The Atlantic Fisherman” is free to the public and will run through March 31.

The exhibit, with photos dating back to the early 1920s, was compiled by Penobscot Marine Museum‘s photography archivist Kevin Johnson and curator Ben Fuller. The black-and-white images, which originally appeared in the trade newspaper The Atlantic Fisherman, show working boats and crews, shore-based fishing methods, and shoreside processing activities.
