Exploring Photos with Jim Smith: Yanick's Shack
Yanick's Shack. (Jim Smith/Special)

Brian Yanick, on the far right in this 1970s picture, is seen with many friends hanging out at his family boat house, which he inherited. The boat house was converted for year-round living with a coal oil space heater. There were endless parties at Yanick’s Shack, which was just one of a number of private boat houses along River Beach Drive. Brian was also a talented guitar player and singer whom I remember entertaining in the Prince of Wales Hotel.
