Florida Paddle Wheel by BobJohnson

Photographic Prints

#This style of boat was used to transport goods &
passengers from the Jacksonville area, through
Silver Springs then on to Tampa & back….. The original boats were “side wheelers” they had
to be redesigned to enable them to pass through
the narrower parts of the river.

MY TREASURED GIFTS I have Two art Works hanging on my wall, one is of an English Pointer and the other of a Tiger.
On the back of the ‘Pointer’ picture you will find written in pencil ‘Merry Christmas Bobby — 1948 — Mrs. Klienberger’ The tiger is dated the following year. Also from her.
These two pieces of art have found a place on a wall in my home where ever we lived.
I still have and enjoy these treasures!!!!!

    Dear Bob..It was over last Saturday
    Planning a fishing trip with YOU now :-)

  • Sounds Great, Just remember, I go fishing, I rarely go CATCHING. But I do have a motto…. Give a man a fish and he’ll eat for a day…. Teach a man a fish and he’ll sit in the boat and drink beer all day!!!,,,,
    Works for me!!!
