Caption: In 1967, Tori Salmon (left) and Anne Quirk wrote an alewife-inspired poem. The small silvery fish wash up onto Lake Michigan beaches and die in great numbers each spring. Normally, alewives start floating onto area beaches in June. It's believed the ocean fish are stressed out by the temperature change in the water.
The front and back of this photograph are pictured below.
