In Partnership with the Marconi Maritime Center: A two-part lecture series on Women at Sea: Then & Now

Part One: Barbara Semple Women at Sea (Then)

Women At Sea relates the experiences of being the only woman aboard a sailing vessel embarking on the China Trade in the late 1800s.  Frances Carleton Brastow Amesbury captured these adventures through her five line a day journal entries and her own photography.  When not at sea, she wrote of her life in the seafaring town of Rockport Maine.
