Yachts Ingomar and Elmina

The Art of the Boat, Photographs from the Rosenfeld Collection, Mystic Seaport Museum 2005

Another incredible sailing photo by Morris Rosenthal and Associates, 1908.
 The 175 foot Ingomar was an extremely successful Herreshoff racing schooner that won many races in both Europe and the east coast of the US. It was wrecked when it went aground in 1931. In recent years, the yacht has been recreated and is for sale in Maine in partially completed condition.
 The 120 ft Elmina was built for FF Brewster in 1901 at Staten Island, there seems to be less info available on its history.
