This week’s prompt is of harbors, ships, boats and harbors. They remind me of a wonderful book I read last year. Ernest Poole’s The Harbor  begins in the days like these when ships with white sails bringing people from the world over into New York with treasures to trade. Times then change and not for the better. Find the book.

If you want to see more nostalgic harbor photos, go to Sepia Saturday .

  1. Sailing ships are awe inspiring to this landlocked Oregonian. The harbors look so serene and peaceful — not the teeming places that I would see today. — and thanks for the tip on the book, will look for it.


  2. I’m also interested in the book…can’t imagine how harbor traffic existed before motorized vehicles. Lots of small craft with sails going out to larger ships anchored away from short, or did they perhaps just sail all the way to docks themselves? Gotta a lot to learn! thanks.
