Crafts

Someone else has already made this tweak to the prompt - sorry about that! But I thought you might like to see two historic craft(s) in the port of Bristol, which I visited this weekend.



Two ships together - the big one is Isambard Kingdom Brunel's SS Great Britain, the origin of modern metal-hulled shipping. The teeny little wooden one over to the left is a replica of the Matthew, John Cabot's transatlantic ship, made for the 500th anniversary of his voyage from Bristol in 1497. (It's not a great picture, what with the looming weather and the fact I was on top of a moving bus at the time, but I thought some of you would enjoy the history anyway! It will enlarge, so you can see the Matthew a bit better if you click through.)

Comments

I love the contrast of the old and the new. The new's more efficient, but the old has way more charm. :-)
So very true. Glad you enjoyed it!
Clever use of the prompt! Ah, and there's that lovely winter icon that I love so much. So happy to see it again. (less so the, you know, actual snow lying around outside today, but...)
Thanks! (Keep warm, too...)
