Ship Model

Fishing and racing schooner Bluenose of Lunenberg, Nova Scotia, built in 1921. Became icon of Nova Scotia and Canada in the 1930s.

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.
