Rum Run Era Photographs
Bill C. of Vermilion sent me some fantastic copies of photographs taken around the era of Rum Run. Of particular interest was those from Huron which played a big part in the story. Bill's brother was a rum runner and used a trap net fishing boat fitted with aero-engines. His brother wrote a book called, As I Remember: Commercial Fishing Bootlegging. I am very glad I met Bill and his wife at my book launch and grateful to him for sharing his fascinating stories and photographs. With his permission, I am using some of his photographs in my presentations and displays.
