I've always liked ships and the sea. I grew up in Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn. Some years ago I began to collect ocean liner artifacts and read histories of ships and shipping. I found the wonderful pictures in the books intriguing but often damaged and unfocused. From there I started looking for public domain images and images in my collections to restore. The nautical things you see are here the result of my restoration efforts. You'll also find some original photographs in various states of reworking. This store is my way of sharing the beautiful vessels of the past with other enthusiasts. If you don't see something you like, or you'd like me to alter something you see just let me know.
