I am a former Gloucester fishermen and I still work in the maritime industry under sail and in other areas. I have a collection of century old negatives of Gloucester vessels from tugs to eastern rig draggers and photos and letters from the men who captained and crewed them. My goal is to publish a coffee table book of these images to share with the public. These funds would be used to scan all negatives digitally and to preserve them in archival sleeves for future generations.
