Dublin Core

Title

Greek men with sponge boat

Subject

Tarpon Springs, Greek community, sponge industry

Description

Greek sponge fishermen pose on a schooner that has been adapted as a diving boat. Since the image includes a man with a bowler hat and tie, this looks like a photograph possibly taken to send to families back at home that the men might not see for many years.
