This historic picture depicts the birth of the current Inlet in August of 1933.
The railroad tracks are visible as are the fish camps where the pound fishermen lived and worked prior to the Aug. 23 hurricane, which occurred prior to storms being named.

Without the Inlet being carved, the sportfishing industry could not have been born and some other town may today be known as “the White Marlin Capital of the World.”
