crowded wharf, detail, Kennebec Mural

Here is a detail from my Kennebec mural.  This region was a bustling river highway back in the days fo sail and this panel portrays the crowded piers in the various towns and cities along the shores.  One historian wrote of Gardiner, Maine that some days the waterfront was so full of ships tied up to piers and rafted to each other that you could walk across teh river from deck to deck.

My cat, a wannabe wharf cat, made it into this section.
