Four college-age men show off their substantial catch, while camping in the woods near Big Lagoon, north of Arcata, California. The letter sweater on the young man in the middle resembles a Stanford sweater. It's not unlikely these were San Francisco area residents on a holiday in the north woods. The car behind all those fish is impressive in its own right. With no radiator cap, and mesh on the side of the hood, is this an early air-cooled car? For 1908, it is very substantial. -- This photo is restored and printed by Old Oregon.
