Photo of Historic Ships Wharf in Seattle

Seattle photographer Dean Forbes has published a shot of all five historic vessels moored at the Historic Ships Wharf at South Lake Union Park. The vessels are left to right, steamer Virginia V, lightship Swiftsure, salmon troller Twilight, fireboat Duwamish, and tug Arthur Foss. (The V5 and Arthur are semi-hidden to the extreme left and right. Also, thanks to Paul for comments regarding copyright.) Photos are said to be worth a thousand words, but the image hides the uncertain fate of these vessels. Some or all of them may have to leave SLUP at some point if the controversy over the use of the wharf doesn't settle down.

If you have photos you'd like to share of historic Puget Sound or western Washington State vessels, let me know.
