Title

men with sponges

Subject

Tarpon Springs, Greek community, men posing with large sponges

Description

The men gathered in front of the Sponge Docks with strings of large harvested sponges reflect a variety of levels within the sponge industry. No doubt those wearing everyday work apparel are sponge boat crews, while those with white shirts and ties are probably merchants.
