Western Flyer, purse seiner, Ed Ricketts & Steinbeck California Picture Collection, Monterey
The only photo I’ve found from The Log to the Sea of Cortez collecting trip in 1940
This photo of the Baby Flyer was probably taken around March 19 near El Pulmo Reef. The story about the Hansen Sea-Cow was in fact a Johnson Sea-Horse Steinbeck liked to change names around.
Mr. Pat Hathaway has the most comprehensive Historical Photo Collection in Central California.
