Cobbler, Isle Au Haut, Eastern Penobscot Bay, Maine, ca. 1896

This lantern slide features a cobbler and his shop, a small sailboat bedecked with signs and advertisements. The cobbler sits toward the bow with a shoe in his lap. The boat is tied to the shore (out of scene) and has a small dingy tied to the port-side.
