Photo Number 582

Ray Binkey Motley ice Cream Shop

A big fish!  A muskie!  I purchased this photo at the Antique Shop with the Ice Cream in Motley Minnesota. I looked at the sign in back of the fisherman..and I could not figure out what it says. It could be the name of a resort??

Ray Binkley 1948 Muskie Motley Ice Cream Shop Ray or Roy Brinkley or Burkley.. the snapshot is stamped Something? Photo 1948.  I wrote Muskie on the back of the photo to identify the fish.

Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)

  3. Could Muskie (or Musky) Bay be the first part?

  4. The guy is very thin. I don't think he can hold up that muskie much longer.

  7. Looks like Brikley as I noticed a dot above the letters which would signify an I to me.

  8. I think the sign says "Musky Bay" but can't piece together anything more than that.

    LOL? Land of Lakes? Minnesota?

    Given its sportsfishing - Mr. Brinkley (or whatever it is) could have been from just about anywhere.

  9. Pretty sure it says Musky Bay. Google has a lot of Musky Bays, so it could be almost anywhere in Wisconsin, Michigan, or southern Canada. Can't come up with anything for LOL--
