"Ozzie used to haul fish from Stanley Fisheries [in Manset] to Portland and Boston. The fish would come into the wharf cleaned and there it would be weighed and packed in boxes on ice with ice on top and loaded into a truck. The load would be in Portland the same day. Ozzie had several people who drove for him too." - Interview with David B. Benson 03/2012.
