Lateen Sailing Ship
Large model of lateen-rigged sailing vessel, with sharply angled sails, constructed of wood. A white and maroon flag flies on stern.
A similar model can be seen here.
The Steamship Historical Society of America is dedicated to the history and preservation of powered vessels; however, it is the first to acknowledge that sailing vessels are the ancestors of powered vessels and therefore, sailing vessels are important to the history of the powered vessel. For this reason it is appropriate for paintings of sailing ships to be depicted in this Museum.
