Jesiek Boat on Wheeled Rig


The "Daisy H" rests on a wheeled rig outside in the yard. A portion of the east end of the Wealthy St. Bridge is visible behind the boat. The photo has been marked with crop lines for reproduction, possibly in a catalog or advertisement. Design #505 is written in the lower left corner. Two wooden buildings and a tall utility pole are at the right. The small building to the left of the pole may be for the man who operates the swing bridge to open it for river traffic.
