Mariah, the US Mail Boat
Thanks to long time fellow Woody Boater Pat Curtin, we have for you these exclusive never been seen before photos from the On Golden Pond set. These were shot by a friend of Pats, and are clearly show the friendship and fun the team had on this Oscar winning film. The shots came to us in very low resolution and faded color. So we did slightly make them larger, and color corrected the age giving detail that was to be lost. Thanks again to Pat for sharring with Woody Boater and Woody Boaters everywhere.
