This fishing party from the early 1900's has set up camp on Little Whortleberry Island on Lake Winnipesaukee. The long deck canoe with torpedo style ends in the foreground was also known as a "courting canoe" with the gentleman paddling in a kneeling position against the stern thwart and the young lady seated in the bow facing him. The rowing skiff features a graceful "wine glass" transom, and in the background a venerable Old Town is pulled up on the sand. A few examples of antique fishing equipment are scattered through the scene including wicker creels and pack baskets.
