One Picture is Worth A Thousand Words

Where did this phrase come from, “One Picture is Worth A Thousand Words”? It came from 2 Marketing ads, one of them was a March 10, 1927 Issue from Barnard’s firm. It referred to a baking soda ad campaign. Who knew!

Nevertheless, I believe the images in our gallery are worth ten million words each.
These images go back to before October 7, 1999. I had even found a few from when gas was cheap, and the boats had more time and carried hunters to cabins, and there are way too many to post all of them here!

The Information on both of these photos came from our published page ketchikancharterboats.com back in 1999. I found them on the Wayback Machine and thought I would share the text and Photos here. I only change some grammar.

“If you have a successful hunt and wish to fish during the remainder of your time, we can arrange that also. You must fill out fishing licenses and king salmon stamps from the skipper, and all boats carry the necessary fishing gear and bait you would need.
KCBI can arrange transportation to and from the airport. Should you need local lodging or tourism information while in Ketchikan, we can help with that also.”

Spring Bear Hunts

Ketchikan Charter Boats, Inc. (KCBI) provides transport to and from your hunting location. You have the opportunity to lodge on the boat, having a floating base camp during the hunt, and use a small boat to reach the hunting area.  With a floating base camp’s mobility, you can quickly change hunting areas while also saving hiking time. While using KCBI as the floating base camp, We will provide warm meals and a warm place to sleep. Alternatively, if you wish, you may choose to rent a cabin from the Forest Service or pack a tent and camp during the hunt.

If you rent a cabin or shelter during your quest, KCBI makes arrangements for a date and time for your transport out.”
