I'm pretty sure last night was 'Historic."
Since every picture tells a story - here is the story about this particular picture.
If you look closely you can see the requisite bar picture of ladies frolicking, the pipe for the pot-belly stove, and the spittoons. See those upside down 'T' shapes? they are gas lights. And notice that most of the men are wearing rubber waders - a sure sign that they were fishermen!
In the original photo the men's names were given: Clifford Seaton, Nelson Dwelle, Fred Dischinger Sr., Bill Voight, Dan Maag, January Coutcher and Fred Elminger.
Wonder what we will do for next year?
