Chet Allen, the founder of Allen's Dock in New Gretna, is in front on the left. Directly behind him is Ry Allen. The second lady from the front on the right is Ry's wife, Rita Allen. (Photo courtesy of Paul Steinhauer.)
Could this be a family outing? Chet was Ry's oldest son and he had two brothers (Ruy and Philip), both married. Maybe Chet's wife took the picture. Had to be before 1935.
I really enjoy digging through the Allen history.
Another successful day of fishing. (Photo courtesy of Paul Streinhauer.)
The New Jersey, circa 1920's, was owned by the State of New Jersey.
