Cape May of the ’60’s

In the 1980’s, Cape May, NJ has a large commercial fishing fleet consisting of clammers, lobstermen, scallopers and trawlers. This photo was taken from the deck of the “Skilligolee”, a lobster boat, showing the fleet in the harbor at Skellenger’s Landing.

Cape May became too costly to keep the commercial fleet moored there. They moved north to Rhode Island and Cape Cod then Maine in the late 1970’s.

About Vermont Woodchuck

Professional Photojournalist since 1969 with a BFA from SUNY Purchase 1979-Visual Arts. I despise advocacy news journalism. Every photojournalist should be prepared to show their camera RAW images of news events. Reason: RAW images cannot be altered no matter what is done to the finished product.
