LOW, LOW TIDE AT PORT BLAKELY
12X16 oil. Another lovely sunny day. It is hard to imagine that 3 masted schooners were built in this harbor in 1881. In the next 22 years 77 vessels were built and the Hall Brothers employed 50-70 men with payrolls amounting to more than $10,000 per month. There is a small holding pool behind the walls on the right side of my painting. At high tide lumber could be floated into the harbor and kept in the holding pond until needed.
