    "I think of a sundrenched porch on the front of the tiny "Bon Ton Fish Market," on Easy Street, over which John Taber presided. Here would sit Frank Meiggs with his beard; Henry Main, with his red hair and bright, blue eyes, snapping out a story between teeth clenched on the stem of a pipe; Clint Orpin, younger than the regulars here, but a veteran fisherman, and Captain Henry Folger, who had been a coasting skipper and whose resonant voice still returns over the years."
