Four Ice Boats on Lake Tashmoo circa 1930

Handwritten Notes: "Ice Boats on Lake Tashmoo circa 1930"

From the left Captain Hartson H. Bodfish's, next Doctor Orland S. Mayhew; I don't know the owners of the two on the right. Bodfish's and Mayhew's were big boats with large cockpits capable of holding six to eight people. Chester Robinson had one about the same size, but it is not in this picture. I was a passenger many times in both of these boats. [W. H. Renear]
