Grosh, Waukesha tio n of the photograph reveals the presence of a large Public School System, Waukesha, Wis. 53186 islan d (Bald Porcupine) beneath the cloud on the left. Th e photograph below shows low cap clouds over two Since Bald Porcupine Island is farther away from the camer a and in front of the mainland, the viewer has of the Porcupine Islands in Frenchman Bay, Maine.
