I was going through some of my dad's old things and found my great uncle Harry's old fishing license and regulations. The fishing license actually fits inside a pocket in the back of the regulations booklet. That's a neat idea. The regulations are from 1929 to 1930 and the fishing license is for 1930. I scanned them so here are the pictures.Attached File  1.jpg   25.13KB   32 downloadsAttached File  2.jpg   25.62KB   29 downloads

Great find, John. I have my grandfather's hunting license form 1957-58. Cost was $3.00. That sounds cheap but I can remember when it was only $2.00. :smiley-innocent-halo-yellow:

That is pretty cool John!I bet the people that had to pay $2.00 for a fishing license in 1930 were wondering what the world was coming to.I worked in the Taft Sporting Goods store in 1969 and a full fishing license then was $5.00. So the cost of a fishing license went up $3.00 in 39 years.So at that rate of increase our fishing licenses should be just over $8.00 right now.

I'll try and scan some of the pages so you can see what the regulations used to look like. Plus this thing is pocket sized so there weren't allot of regulations.

Very cool...have you ever noticed that our dad's and grandpa's had the prettiest writing. Feel kinda wierd bringing that up :censored[1]: ...but it seems to be true. The way they made things back then to be a piece of functional equipment also says things of where we were then and where we are now. Nice snag John.

Sixty years ago, when I was in grammar school, we had to learn to write. I don't mean spelling and such but the cursive method. We spent a lot of time on learning to write correctly too. Today, folks are too much in a hurry. Heck, even here on the forums, folks don't take the time for capitalization, punctuation or spell check. And look at the laziness of folks typing on here and using u instead of you, or ur instead of you're, or some other such shortcut. Just plain lazy, in my opinion.

I remember that too Braz. Except I broke my arm as a young kid and had it in a cast and splint so long I switched writing hands just to keep up. :doh[1]: Now I can write and do everything with either hand but only half as well if you saw my writing. :lol:

Some things just don't make sence to me anymore..... Toe dancers= why not just get TALLER women? How far and how fast does a fat lady have to walk before she smells somthing burning?Why does a gas truck have stop for gas?Why do Asians have to wear sunglasses?Why should I worry about spelling. Braz can figure it out, I'll bet. When you have had a stroke.... some things just seem so trivia.Braz...I still love ya.

I've read that educators are now worried that due to text messaging craze amongst our youngsters, they are becoming poor spellers and having poor grammatic writing styles.....

I dont know about you, but when i got a QWERTY keyboard phone (aka smart phone) it forced me to be a better speller because i couldnt rely upon T9 for spelling
