Ben Crowninshield’s fish 1930’s

Hello Joey,
A friend found the attached among old family clippings. With her permission, I thought I’d share. The fisherman in the checked shirt is Ben Crowninshield. It is stated that the photo was in the 1930’s. I have never heard about the International Tuna Cup Competition (Sharp Cup.) 
The reels look like Fin-Nor’s. The boats look like Novi hulls.
Hope these are interesting for you.

One thought on “Ben Crowninshield’s fish 1930’s

  1. I love this photo and the accompanying clipping.. Lawrence J Hart, my Grandfater, was the Director of the Chamber of Commerce during this time. He was given a Chelsea ships clock for his part in the tournements. That clock sits on my desk Here in Suffolk Virgina (now home) and reminds me of both him and Gloucester every day.
