Paul Leuchner sent this photo of Finnie's Frog Island Sample Room, a bar located on what is now called Motor Boat Island. He wrote: "I discovered it in a file dated from the mid-1930's. There are numerous references in the historic record about a bar on Frog Island that was active during Prohibition. However, this is the first bit of photo evidence of the actual bar. Although not actually dated, the clipping was in a file from the mid-1930's. Do any Grand Islander's remember this place or might there be some photos of Finnie's in an old family album?" Grand Island history buffs would love to hear about the Prohibition years. If anyone has information from that time, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
