DUST JACKET INTRODUCTION
A remarkable collection of photographs, this volume is a pictorial record of the changing patterns of coastal and harbor life in North America and England during the seventy year period before the First World War - a time so close and yet so very different from our own. It was a time of evolution in ocean transport and these eloquent photographs give us a clear picture of the way it was at the docks and in the harbors, of the men and women who lived their lives close to the sea, and of the great variety of boats and ships - square-rigged merchant ships and cargo steamers, paddle boats, packet ships, and ocean liners - which served the needs of men and society during this period.
The 134 photographs are from the archives of the maritime museum at Mystic Seaport, Mystic, Connecticut, and the National Maritime Museum at Greenwich, England, and from other private and public collections.
Basil Greenhill, a leading authority on the history of merchant sailing ships, is the author of twelve books on maritime history including the classic The Merchant Schooners, and the Director of the National MaritimeMuseum in Greenwich.
