Description: Originally founded by a fishing company in 1623, Gloucester has always been linked to fishing and the sea. By 1870 Gloucester was the leading fishing port in the Western Hemisphere, and its great fleet of fast, white-winged schooners ranged deep into the heart of the Atlantic fishing cod, haddock, halibut, mackerel, and also whales. The beautiful ships and the men who sailed them made Gloucester an evocation of courage, perseverance, and seamanship unique in America's maritime heritage, and constitute the subject of this book. Photographs are document, discovery of a near past and instruments of preservation at the same time. This book illustrates, with photographs of the time and captions, the life on the sea and on land of the time, of the men and ships that made the history of fishing and navigation.
