PORT ESSINGTON - DOWN BY THE SEA...
My father Robert Vick and his first boat. ca. 1924
Kids and the water.........the perfect combination!
My Uncle Tony Vick, later of Western Marine Supply, Vancouver.
Two Port Essington ladies out for a Sunday row. The lady at the oars may be Fanny Noble.
Coming ashore at More’s Cove from the Inverness launch ‘Horseshoe’. I imagine the name ties in with the Inverness Cannery flag prominently featuring a horseshoe with a sockeye swimming through it. May 24, 1916.
Still coming ashore in More’s Cove, the Horseshoe in the background. May 24, 1916.
My father out for a row.
My father commercial fishing.
