Nathaniel L. Stebbins photographic collection
- Nathaniel L. Stebbins photographic collection
The Nathaniel L. Stebbins photographic collection is a robust collection of images of sailing vessels that were once familiar sights around Boston and New York. Over the course of Stebbins's career, sailing vessels were largely replaced by other forms of water transportation. Most of the collection consists of Stebbins's images of marine subjects, including sailing vessels (including several entrants in America's Cup races), commercial sailing craft, steamships, ferries, tugs, and fire and police boats. Boatyards and other dockside facilities are also documented. The remainder of the collection documents architectural views, with subjects including Boston buildings, streets, statues, and parks, and views of Concord, Lexington, and other historic sites.
