May - 1909, South Cramden, Wisconsin, is written on the back of this picture.
The ones that did not get away is certainly shown. Three fellas are standing with their catch of the day. No names are recorded, but they appear somewhat fatigued after hanging all these fish.
Granny Ewen (my grandmother) told of a time when her family went to Wisconsin to live. [She was a Morton then.] It must have been a real change from the mountain life in Kentucky. I guess this photograph was taken during this family adventure. Lots of fish there are to be cleaned, eaten, and stashed away for those long winter nights. She told me that they could only take one winter, and back to Kentucky they came, but not before all these fish that didn't get away.
