A Maritime Album: 100 Photographs and Their Stories
The catalogue for a traveling exhibition that will open in December 1997 at the Mariners' Museum in Newport News, Virginia, this fascinating book features 100 historical photos depicting the complex, often deeply passionate relationships of mariners with their vessels and the sea. Each photo chronicles a fragment of the mariner's experience over the past 200 years--shipbuilding, the making of a wooden skiff, commercial fishing and whaling, amateur sailing, deep-sea diving, naval encounters, and much more.
