Artifacts. Stories.: The Panoramic Sketch - E2

Updated 19 days ago

In Episode Two of Galveston.com’s new video series, Artifacts. Stories., my right-hand man, Chris Aleman, joins Eleanor Barton to talk about a sketch of the harbor and downtown drawn in 1855.  At the time, docks were extending into the bay about a quarter of a mile.  Where Pier 21 is today, there was water.  Horse-drawn wagons carried cargo to downtown.  George Osborne and I decided to visit the location where the artist was perched on the mast of a sailing vessel over 150 years ago.

 

 

About nine months ago, I made a personal commitment to learn more of Galveston's colorful history. I understand that this is not a cinematic work of art. I'm simply sharing what I learned. If you have any suggestions for improvement - or story ideas! -  please post them in the Disqus comments below.
