nicholask A length of marble facade has been stripped from a wall with old graffiti revealed below. I see possible dates indicating 1988 and 1969 but overwhelmingly this is all from 1976. "Gerald Ford + Queen" indeed. 1mon
  •   nicholask Continued reading shows this was overwhelmingly from May, June and July in 1976. 1mon
  •   nicholask #OpSail was the name of the event and Gerald Ford toasted Queen Liz. :) 1mon

nicholask One more. July 4, 1976. A coworker was here for the fireworks in NY Harbor. It was a big show and I imagine that is how this giant wall filled with graffiti. 1mon

  •   trollix120 @solrenning Thank you! 5mon
  •   trollix120 @skynyrd77 thanks! You know, I've seen old photos of Boston Harbor when it was full of sailing vessels. It's hard to appreciate how colorful it must have been back in the day since 5mon
  •   trollix120 @skynyrd77 all those photos were in black and white. At least events like this give a bit of a clue. 5mon
  •   skynyrd77 Yes very cool. Nothing like a tall ship in full sail. Have a great weekend. 5mon
  •   fille_du_fleuve I wonder if photo editing apps would pick up on the original colors? It amazes me that shades of gray carry the codes for a world of colors. 5mon
  •   trollix120 @fille_du_fleuve That would be so cool to try. The only problem would be getting hold of an original negative or plate to try it on. 5mon
  •   fille_du_fleuve I mean like I did with the Westcott photo - Captain Sam Buchanan scanned an original photo, not negative or plate. He posted it on facebook, gave me permission to play. I saved the file to my phone and opened it with a mobile app called snapseed. I might have used Photo Editor and/or Pixlr Express also. 5mon

trollix120 Barque "Alexander von Humboldt" in Boston Harbor, either during OpSail 1992 or the previous event. She's a beauty and her suit of green sails is stunning. Interestingly, she wasn't built as a sailing ship, but was converted from a lightship. She certainly turned out well!

clairevgreco The only tall mast ship of the Barquentine KRI Dewaruci...owned and operated by the Indonesian Navy...serving as a goodwill ambassador to the world. Photo taken in 2013 while at port in Staten Island, New York. Her name and figurehead is representative of the mythological Indonesian God of truth and courage. This ship actually has her own marching band...providing entertainment at different ports festivals. If you have an opportunity to board her at an Op Sail event, do so, you'll be delighted at her beauty. This was taken in May of 2012. 6mon
  •   cassharmon I took pictures of this very same ship in 2012 when it was docked at Massachusetts Maritime Academy, my son and I were doing a Cape Cod Canal cruise and passed the ship on its way out to sea and all of the Sailors were on the masts all the way down the canal. So impressive! 4mon
  •   clairevgreco I'm very happy that OpSail is once again active @cassharmon 4mon
  •   pattigardens Love tall ships 4mon
  •   pixi_laura_vanilla OMG I missed this!! I sooo wish I could have seen it!! One of my very favorite tall ships!! 4mon
  •   clairevgreco @pixi_laura_vanilla I was pretty darn happy boarding it...incredible wood carvings. Sure it will be back again. 4mon
  •   pixi_laura_vanilla I was last on it for Opsail 2000... I even came to NYC (my first visit) to see the ships again (after Norfolk, VA)... Now I live in NYC. Funny how life works! :) The ship is beautiful, the crew was really nice, and their marching band was awesome! Their ship was also open when all of the others were closed (for weather, etc). 4mon
  •   clairevgreco @pixi_laura_vanilla Hope you enjoy living in the big apple! 4mon
  •   riiswaters Love this shot 3mon

trollix120 Small tug "Assistant" helps swing the beautiful Russian sailing ship "Крузенштерн" ("Kruzenshtern", ex "Padua") at the end of her procession into Boston's inner harbor during the Parade of Sail in OpSail '92.
