The City Seen from The Boston Globe
DORCHESTER -- For 35 years, Luther Marshall, left, has cared for the ichthyological needs of the Dorchester and Roxbury neighborhoods from L. Dee's Bait and Tackle Shop on Blue Hill Avenue. His shop is open seven days a week and Marshall says he hasn't missed a day of work in 10 years. One of his regular customers, Stephen Smith, right, has more than 60 fish at home. On this particular day, Smith bought a convict fish and an iridescent shark. 'It's a soothing thing to watch fish in the tank,' says Marshall, although he himself doesn't have a fish tank at home. 'I'm with them seven days a week,' he says. 'That's all I need to do is clean tanks again at home.'
