Have a restful Saturday / vi auguriamo un sabato di riposo

Old anchors, Scopello / E PL-2

These old anchors were used in the tuna boats that used to be used to fish tunas. They were very heavy and were used on large row boats. Today this system has given way to modern but very eco unfriendly boats that have practically eradicated the tuna as a specie. It's called progress.
