The Schooner Bald Eagle

This is pretty much how the Tarr and Wanson paint factory looked when we arrived in Gloucester.

The Schooner Bald Eagle is one of my favorite little schooners to photograph. Here is the Bald Eagle in August 2008 in front of the Tarr and Wanson paint factory. This is right after the building was donated to Ocean Alliance.

Here we are, one year later in September, 2009.

In 2011, the Bald Eagle still looks smart. The Tarr and Wanson paint factory is getting renovations. Yet the section of the factory on the left is finally giving in. I think we should see some action shortly as a berm has been placed there in the last week.

If it weren't for those condos the top photo would be just about perfect. That last photo is heartbreaking with the paint factory falling into the water. Hopefully it's not to late.

I also noticed the different tide levels. Big rise. Will look forward to 2012 pictures.

I love your photos of that old paint factory. Almost makes we want to come visit the area just to see it.
