I’ve been thinking about the wooden fish today. This is an item residing in my kitchen. The fish, constructed of boards of wood affixed and carved in the shape of a fish, inscribed and lacquered, was made for Steven’s grandfather, Sam Frankenstein, sometime between 1920 and 1945. Apparently fishing was a big hobby for the so-called “fishing Frankensteins,” who were written up in the newspaper back in the days when such goings-on were of general interest to other residents of the Bronx. I’ve always loved the fish and it will continue to move with us.
