Lifesaving Crew, 1890

Look at these men. They are ordinary folk. That's Bungay, Morash and Noonan in the back row and Robinson, Bob Cleary and Sid Mosher in the front. They brought skill and courage to a tough job on an island that was sometimes very beautiful, but more often cold, damp and uncomfortable. They were remarkably successful at saving lives.
