    A boat ride in Fairhaven-New Bedford Harbor, September 1990. Conditions were perfect for taping the Fairhaven dock scenes as the sun was going down and the fall full moon was rising. Some of these vessels are no longer part of the Fairhaven waterfront including the WNBH radio tower that soon would fall a year later with Hurricane Bob. The camera was a Sony 327 CCD-a new chip camera-state of the art at the time. Skippered by Captain Peter Jarosik-KA1WBE and taped by M.L.Baron-KA1WBH. www.westislandweather.com Part 3 of 3

  • Old Ironsides in New Bedford 1931

    USS Constitution went into Dry Dock #1 in 1927 for her most comprehensive restoration to date. However, in order to finance the massive work, which was first estimated at over $400,000, Congress authorized a nation-wide fund raising effort beginning in 1925. They targeted school children, asking them to donate their pennies. Within the first year, the children collected $148,000, and the restoration plans began. The young motion picture industry aided the campaign with Paramount Pictures releasing the silent movie "Old Ironsides." Another part of the effort included noted marine artist Gordon Grant, who created a painting of the ship under full sail. Over one million lithographic copies were sold to individuals and corporations; the original painting is part of the White House collection. Wood and copper removed from the ship were again made into souvenirs; ashtrays, bookends, and inkstands were some of the more popular items bought and sold to help finance the restoration. As the Great Depression hit the United States in 1929 fund raising became more difficult. With the restoration half completed and little money coming from the campaign, Congress appropriated the remaining monies. USS Constitution floated out of dry dock in March 1930, restored as close to her original configuration as possible. In order to thank the Nation for funding the restoration, USS Constitution embarked on a 3-coast tour (1931-1934), visiting 76 ports and hosting 4.6 million patriotic citizens.
