Having Fun in Fishtown
The young girl pictured aboard the Helen S (built in Fishtown in 1927) is Patty (Dunshee) Shea. Patty brought the photo to our office in 2007. The Helen S was built in Fishtown in 1927 by John Johnson for commercial fisherman Hank Steffens, Sr. The fishing tug was named after Hank and Amelia’s daughter Helen Steffens.
