Coasting Schooner Glendon
Painting - Acrylic, Pen & Ink On 9x12
3 Masted Coasting Schooner "Glendon" assisted by a tug entering Newburyport, Ma harbor in 1893 with a load of coal from Philadelphia. Three years later she was wrecked in a storm at nearby Hampton Beach in New Hampshire. Surf boats from nearby Wallis Sands and Straw Point lifeboat stations responded and the c rew was saved. Because of the wreck of the Glendon, the US Government established a life-saving station at Hampton Beach in 1894. Freight of all types was shipped coastwise from the early 1700s until mid-1900s in hundreds of sailing schooners with from two to six masts. Lifeboat stations were maintained first by the US Lifesaving Service and later the US Coast Guard from early 1800s until WW-II and the advent of modern navigation equipment and aids to navigation along our coasts.
Watch for my next marine painting, "Wreck of the Glendon".
The 4pg. story of the shipwreck of the Glendon, including 4 photos will be included with both original painting when sold.
