    These guys sure give the trap boy a work out. Nice touch--drinking gin from empty shotgun shells! I don't think I want to shoot with these guys!!

    That guy working the lever was sure busy.

    How would you like to have to dress that way on a hot day? And of course no A/C.

    Sure looked like they were having a good time.

    Pretty cool look at the way they did it back then.

    Looks like a Browning Auto five or Remington Model 11? A side by side and maybe some Ithaca Flues model, LC Smith or Fox single barrels?

    I see they had some home distilled beverage, and even during prohibition. Drinking shots out of a empty hull is always classy when you don't have a glass.

    I'm always amazed at how skinny people were before the 1960's.

    What a great old film. That A-5 was a pretty new thing in 1926. Three piece suits with a carnation, and hats, that is a lot different. When the film switched over to the lake, was that Joe Kennedy with a woman on deck of that Sedan Boat?

    If you can read lips, the topic in front of the club house while passing the bottle was........


    Yep, 7 1/2's or 8's?

    And did you see that pair of shoes? Only rappers wear that type today.

    BTW, that was me wearing that full length mink coat. Trapped 'em myself...

    I read their lips and actually the guys are still bitching about the Grand being moved to Vandailia, Ohio from the South Shore Country Club in Chicago, IL. I believe the one guy said its too far to drive and its too hot for us old guys. Somethings never change. LMAO :)
