SS Cymric m Putting to Sea

In this painting, SS Cymric, a passenger steamship of the White Star Line, is portrayed in Cork Harbour, Ireland. Known as one of the world's deepest harbors, it enables the town of Queenstown (now Cobh) to display all its glorious colors just beyond the ship. The year is 1914 and the nearly completed steeple of St. Colmans rises up high above the town. Sixteen bells were just installed with more to come. World War 1 is about to commence and before the end of the year SS Cymric is to be refitted as a troop ship.

HMS Hampton Court

In this painting the second frigate Boston is depicted departing Boston Harbor, Massachucetts in 1804. The topsails have been set and the crew is in the process of loosing the courses. It's a windy day, so the topgallants are still snugly furled. The outer or flying jib is set; the jib is furled; the forestaysail is set. The wind is off her starboard quarter.
