1654. (photo) Cahoons Hollow Coast Guard Station c.1930’s. Rare early photo shows great detail of the Cahoons Hollow station as local boys pose on the ramp. Boys on summer vacation on Cape Cod as well as local youth loved to visit the Coast Guard stations and halp or watch the men work and drill. Many youths would run errands for the crews and might be rewarded by a meal with the crew, sitting in the surfboat or even a view from the watch tower. Clear close snapshot shows great detail. Measures 3 ¼” x 4 ¼” with a few blemishes, aome album residue on back. Rare view. (VG). $48.
