"Oyster boats passing Sheffield Island lighthouse, circa 1900."

The sun is just climbing above the horizon as some oyster boats tack past Sheffield Island lighthouse. In the foreground is a small 'natural growth' oyster sloop and just ahead of her is a "New Haven Sharpie" type of oyster boat. Sunlight reflects off the waves on the left hand side, lighting up the sails of the boats.
