N.Y. Oswego. Life Saving Station, Man in Breeches Buoy.

View of Oswego harbor. Sailors from the life saving station stand near a dock on the rocky shore of Lake Ontario as waves roll in. They may be preparing to put a man in a breeches buoy to practice a rescue operation. A railroad track passes through the foreground. In the background, a long trestle appears behind a lighthouse running out to the lake.
