Beautiful Label for L. A. Fish & Co., Jonesboro, Maine
Label for a crate, I assume, of packed sardines of the L. A. Fish & Company, Jonesboro, Maine. It's likely that the family behind this company ties in with the family of Lucia Fish, a shut-in in the Jonesport/Jonesboro area, who received many cards from all over, as part of the "Shut-In" program, something I'd love to know more about - who started it, when did it start, etc.?
Lucia, born in 1890, was the daughter of George Washington Gates Fish and his wife Lizzie Madge Drisko Fish. See their family tree, a work in progress. I came across a group of the postcards that Lucie, or Lucie or Lucy, received. I'll bet they gave her a lot of pleasure.
Again, if you have any information on the Shut-in Program or the Fish Family of Washington County, Maine, please let me know.
