The Way We Were.......

Just for the halibut ( hell of it ) I searched Yahoo, LI Waterfowling in an image search and came up with some interesting images. This one is the best. Gotta love this stuff!

Now that I posted this as a LI, Jones Beach image, I am not sure. The Jones Beach tower was built in the 1920's under Robert Moses. This print, looks like the style of the 1800's and the sinkbox was ended in 1918 in the US.
......."Sinkboxes were typically used by market (rather than sport) hunters for duck or other waterfowl in both the United States and Canada until 1918, when the practice was banned in the United States with the passage of the Migratory Bird Act of 1918."

Oh well, I guess that tower isn't the Jones Beach Tower. But for a moment it was the 1800's, and the LI marsh I have hunted.

doesnt look like a sink box...he is sitting at the surface!! plus i find in hard to believe they outlawed sink boxes that far back.... I would have thought they were using them into the 30's

maybe it is the Washington Monument...

Could be the Fire Island Lighthouse, it is striped...Originally built in 1826 and then rebuilt larger in 1856 as it remains today.
