Mending nets
This photo is from the collection of George W. Ferguson, Centerville, MA. and loaned to the Provincetown History Project for inclusion in its archive. It depicts a wharf, circa the late 1800's, with men mending nets in the vicinity of 94 Commercial St. The house with the porches belongs to Francis 'Flyer' Santos and is next door to the Capt. Lysander Guest House as of this posting in 2010.
