Algoma Pictures

Algoma, Wisconsin is located 30 miles east of Green Bay, Wisconsin, nestled against the shore of Lake Michigan.  For years local fishermen would exit the Ahnapee river and complete their daily commercial fishing on the lake.  Their catch would be brought back to the "fish shanties" where they were cleaned, processed.  Smoked fish such as the lake chubs processed in these Algoma Shanties were considered to be the absolute best around.

The surrounding countryside was totally inhabited by dairy farmers who would produce milk for the various Cheese producing plants.  Algoma was the commercial center for the 2,700 city dwellers as well as the hundreds of farmers in the surrounding countryside.

 This beautiful aerial shot of Algoma was taken from the cockpit of Rockie's aircraft, alias (Roland Krause).  Bullwinkle, alias Ron Heuer, was the photographer.  Picture was taken in late May of 2007.  We had a very good landing too!
