Southport Market Boats in 1905

(click on image to enlarge)
Southport Market Boats
Southport, Connecticut
Description: B/w post card, "26C20, Luin B Switzer, Publisher." Printed on the front of the card sent to "Mrs. H. T. Bulkley, Southport": "The Last of the Market Fleet, Southport, Conn." Written on the front: "Comps of L.B.S. (by Luin B. Swtizer himself)" The card is postmarked 24 Nov 1905. Luin B. Switzer ran the Southport drugstore from 1895 to about 1940. The drugstore is still called "Switzer's." In the Weekly Times of 11 Aug 1905, Switzer advertised "Southport Souvenir post cards at Southport Pharmacy. 2 for 5 cents." This may be one of the souvenir cards advertised. In the picture the schooner on the left is the one identified by Charlotte Lacey in her Historical Story of Southport (page 45) as the "Mary Elizabeth, " a market boat owned by the firm of Chas. Jennings & Son. The schooner on the right may be the "George Edwin, " a market boat owned by the Simon Banks firm. The market boats ceased operation about 1903-4. The "Mary Elizabeth" was sold in 1905 and taken to Long Island.
