LB2008.15.163
Collection Elmer Montgomery Collection
Description Dragger ST. GEORGE under construction. Interior view including five workmen and keel timbers.
Exhibit Label BUILDING THE ST. GEORGE, 1939

Albert Condon’s drawings for this 110’ dragger are, like all his work, very detailed. There’s no guessing the size, shape, and location of the pieces that go into building her. Snow’s Shipyard was already bustling before its wartime expansion. A new wooden dragger or seiner had slid off the ways every few months since the place was reorganized around 1936. Two other big ones like the ST. GEORGE (the NORTH STAR and BELMONT) followed in September, 1940 and April, 1941.
Before moving to Fairhaven, Massachusetts, Albert Condon had supervised construction at Snow’s. After the move, he continued drawing plans for Snow’s and for the Newbert & Wallace yard in Thomaston. Mystic Seaport now owns all of Albert Condon’s drawings.

This is an amazing resource.

Ben Fuller and Kevin Johnson have been busy, very busy, in Searsport, ME. They've been keeping a small cadre of volunteers and staff members very busy as well.
Ben is the curator at the Penobscot Marine Museum, Kevin the museum's photo archivist.
The museum is celebrating it's 75th anniversary and part of the celebration is the addition, as of February 12, of 20,000 newly digitized images to the museums digital photo archive, bringing the total to about 50,000. Wow. And that's only 1/2 of the total photo archive, and their goal is to get it all online, as well as all the museums other collections. Understand this huge repository of images is available now, here, free! I have offered a small sampling of various collections to whet your appetite. One could literally spend months. It's interesting to see a small, regional institution create a world class digital photo database. Hats off to Ben, Kevin and the rest of the team, more power to ya'.
I'm sure the museum can use all the help it can get, so if you enjoy this resource, please do something about it.

These are some amazing photos. I would like to see more photos/work by Everett Boutilier. He covers everything. The personal "small rowing craft" picture reminds me of my child hood. Summers on the lake in Canada, just me and my brothers running our Allen Lightning sailboat from sun up to sun down. Ahh the good 'ol days! Very interesting work you shared with us thank you!
