Artist's Description

Photo taken at the Mystic Seaport, the Museum of America and the Sea, it’s a living history maritime museum situated along the banks of the Mystic River in Mystic, Connecticut, USA. It is notable both for its collection of sailing ships and boats, and for the re-creation of crafts and fabric of an entire 19th century seafaring village. It consists of more than 60 original historic buildings, most of them rare commercial structures moved to the 37-acre (15 ha) site and meticulously restored.

The museum was established in 1929 as the “Marine Historical Association”. Its first fame came with the acquisition in 1941 of the Charles W. Morgan, the only surviving wooden sailing whaler. The seaport was one of the first living history museums in the United States, with a collection of buildings and craftsmen to show how work was done. The seaport now receives about 400,000 visitors each year. (Info from internet Wikipedia Encyclopedia)

Photo digitally altered to give it an aged look. Changed to sepia, added old photo filter, did some cloning, lighting adjustments. Added texture from my own collection.
