Postcards from Southport, New York

These postcards were done one morning last weekend in New York City.  This ship, the Ambrose, was built in 1908 and served until the mid sixties as a lightship in a couple of locations off Sandy Hook to mark the entry into New york harbour.  It is one of the ships owned by the Seaport Museum.

This wheelhouse stands alone on the dock under  the shadow of the Peking, a 377 foot sailing barque built in 1911.
