Sentimental Saturday – A Mess Of Fish

I’m posting photos from my collection of family photographs on Saturdays with a brief explanation of what I know about each picture.

Ah, the great outdoors! Summers at the lake. Just the sounds of nature to break the peaceful quiet.

The Wagner family enjoyed life at the cottage and in the summer, they liked to go fishing. This week’s Sentimental Saturday photo shows their prowess with rods, reels and hooks. A mess of fish were brought home to eat. But first, the obligatory pose with the catch.

All the kids, from left to right Ted, Mary Jane, Scott, and little Ellen yelling something (or complaining?) to father Carl on the far right.

The photo was likely taken by Ellen’s mother, Tess (Latimer) Wagner in the backyard of the family home. The photo is undated but was probably taken around 1954.
