Stephen Taber then and now

I’ve been waiting for the Stephen Taber to sail by, so I could snap a photo to post with this scanned one taken in 1956 by my mother, Marion Emerson in Buck’s Harbor, Maine. Built in 1871, the Taber was 85 when the photo was taken by my mother (above) and 145 as she sailed past just now (right)! Of course I cannot help but refer to her as Step Hen Taber…reminiscent of my first pronunciation of her name. Let’s not dwell on how many years ago that was!
