This photo of a fish sculpture is from the October 1949 issue of Popular Science. It was carved from cherry wood by Clark Battle Fitz-Gerald.
The January 1950 issue ran a letter of complaint from Al Gingras, a self-styled ichthyologist from Baldwinsville, MA.
A Google image search suggests Mr. Gingras is correct. Has this ancient dispute been settled?
