Craig Beachy Queen Charlotte Islands British Columbia Canada. Pictured here with a Halibut he caught this summer while fishing off shore. A fish this size is harpooned in order to bring them on broad. That explains the blood, and some of you didn't know fish had red blood?

Leo J. Beachy - A Legacy Nearly Lost - In the early 1900s, photographer Leo Beachy took captivating images of life in Western Maryland, Western Pennsylvania and West Virginia, but most of his glass plate negatives were destroyed in 1927. In recent years, Beachy's niece, Maxine Broadwater, recovered 2,700 negatives and is working to bring her uncle's remarkable legacy back to life.
Leo Beachy's photographs are on display at the Grantsville Museum in Maryland - (301) 895-5454
