eBay Eyes: Went Fishin'

I seem to have taken a bit of a hiatus from posting. But hey, isn’t that what summer is for?

These vintage reel boxes might trigger memories for some of you, but I’ve no salty sentimentality to offer. You see mine were not a seafaring people. Navy service during WWII cured my father of any further interest in maritime adventure. Ocean-passage to Ellis Island was quite enough for his father before that.

Fortunately, no nautical expertise is necessary to enjoy the period graphics on these old boxes.

What’s the opposite of “deep-sea” fishing? That’s me, age 3, with big bro.

eBay Eyes is an occasional presentation of found visual treats from that ever-expanding, electronic mega-marketplace.
