As you may recall a bit back we scored some rare photos off eBay and thanks to the good folks at Ramsey Bros they found this cool article dated May 1930 in Power Boating magazine. Its cool to see the final article along with the photo. Ironically, from the time we saw the photo until this time, about replicates the time it would have taken to do a story on the photo. With magazine printing, writing, type setting, sometimes a story could take up to 90 days to report.
Also of note is in an Obit, it mentions that Albert Frost was the 2nd oldest Chris Craft dealer in the Country. Johnson Outboards and Boston Whaler! mmm, so now you know more of the story. All this from an ebay photo!Here is a quote from the Portland Press Harold. I think this is a sons Obit, cause he was 72 in 2008. And Albert Sr was born in 1889
“Albert’s lifetime career was with his family business Albert G. Frost Son Boat Company in Scarborough. He later became President and General Manager of Frost Marine Company. Albert served on many marine counsels with Chris Craft, Johnson Motor and Boston Whaler. He was recognized for his achievements with numerous awards. His relentless integrity and dedication in providing outstanding customer service for his customers was his standard in the business. His employees and colleagues were honored to be a part of his life.
The Frost boat business was the oldest Johnson Outboard Motor and Boston Whaler boat dealer in the United States and was the second oldest Chris Craft boat dealer in the U.S.”
Okay now it gets more fun, as we look through the issue thanks to the Ramsey bros and there scanner. Woohoo, magazine scans!
