Shrimp Boats Mosquito Fleet
Photograph - Old Photograph
This is a photograph of the Shrimp Boat Fleet (Mosquito Fleet) in 1955. Note the big mound of dirt in the background. This was brought in as ballast in the old ships that called at Galveston in the early days. Also see the old autos parked
on the wharf behind the boats. This photo was taken with an old 620 bellows camera with a Compur-Rapid lense. It is a camera that was used by a war correspondent during WWll.
