A Dream of Tall Ships by Peter & Norma Stanford

SSSBcoverSMThe National Maritime Historical Society is proud to announce a new book they just published on the founding of the South Street Seaport. A Dream of Tall Ships: How New Yorkers came together to save the city’s sailing-ship waterfront is an entertaining memoir by Peter and Norma Stanford about their dream of saving Manhattan’s old waterfront and creating a museum that celebrates its history and all those who participated in its restoration.

Peter and Norma are well known in the maritime community and Peter was instrumental in the founding of the Council of American Maritime Museums. We plan to review the book in an upcoming newsletter.  Meanwhile, more information is available in this book flyer.
