Building the 'Rachel W. Stevens', Bath, Maine, 1898
A four masted schooner under construction in the yard of the New England Company near the mouth of the Kennebec River. This picture shows the construction of the keelson, made from eight great baulks of timber.
The expansion of the coal trade on the east coast of America in the last years of the nineteenth century lead to increased demands for bigger schooners.
