7 Nautical Photograph of sloop "Playful" in Bristol, Rhode Island(?) Harbor.
Bristol? c.1890 5 x 8" 
The print laid down on cigar box lid (no box). Locality attribution due to milieu. The sloop is a two-master, w/anchorage adjacent to the Church Street House. The image is sharp, but there's a thin brown cloud (proprietor burning trash?) that wafts across the back of the church adjacent to the hotel. Residue from a deceased rubber band covers an inch by 1/32" across bottom margin (in the basin). (4868651715)
