Droppin’ a Line, circa 1935

Lazy days are best spent on the pond with a fishing pole in hand, as demonstrated by this barefooted youngster from years gone by.

Mobile photographer S. Blake McNeely captured this image of a barefooted youngster enjoying a lazy day at the pond. Although the boy’s identity and the location of this pond are unknown, it can be estimated that, if living today, this little boy would be around 90 years old.
