Description: A three-person fishing party is on a boat. A man with a pipe in his mouth is standing at the edge of the boat, holding up a large fish. Another man and a woman are in the background, sitting on a chair and a bench, respectively.
Date note: While the date provided by Rollie McKenna for a similar image is circa 1910, it may be closer to 1912 if the film is cellulose nitrate (which it probably is). According to the Image Permanence Institute, Kodak did not start manufacturing 5x7" nitrate sheet film until 1912. From "Photographic Negatives: Nature and Evolution of Processes"
Inscription: Recto/film side: "7" in black ink on the bottom left edge
