We are indebted to Andrew Snell, the Great Grandson of James Snell for the supply of the picture on this page. This photo from his family album shows the skipper/owner James Snell, seated on the far right looking at the camera. The two young men are his sons Arthur and William; the boy is unknown.  The older crew members are probably Frank Martin and Godfrey Mills.
