This is one of several mosaics at the Sheepshead Bay station that illustrate the community's maritime heritage. The hat and suspenders evoke the Great Depression; perhaps this fellow was fishing for his supper. Contemporary anglers still patronize the bait-and-tackle shop farther along the waterfront, but nowadays many do their fishing from charter boats rather than terra firma.
