Hauling Seine, Columbia River, Oregon
Hauling Seine, Columbia River, Oregon
TitleHauling Seine, Columbia River, Oregon
DescriptionA black-and white photograph of a group of men on a bank of the Columbia River. On the bank lies a fishing seine or net, which some of them are still hauling out of the water. Dark floats can be seen at the edges of the seine. In the water a few feet from the bank is a wooden rowboat. One of its oars is set so it sticks up vertically. At its stern is a haul of fish, which a man in a wide-brimmed hat and long white apron is touching. He is one of about ten men, all but one wearing hats or caps, who are lined up in the water and along the edge of the shore contemplating the catch or watching the photographer. Another man in apron and hat stands in the water at the prow of the ship, hands on hips. Across the wide river are forested hills.
