27233. (mounted photo) Massachusetts Humane Society, “Point Shirley Surf Boat”, Winthrop, Mass c.1900. Early mounted photo by Harry W. Brown of Winthrop Beach shows what may be Massachusetts Humane Society members participating in a parade pulling a crude float lettered “Point Shirley Surf Boat” and “life boat service and crew”. Some men are dressed in so-westers while others are in various costumes. 4 ½” x 8” image on 9” x 11” mount is clean and clear, a nice image. Residents’ summer dress and American Flags are flying leaning me to believe this may be a 4th of July celebration. Light wear to mount edges only. (VG+). $128.
