Builder's scale model of the Fall River Line steamer "Puritan"
The steamer "Puritan" was designed by George Pierce and built in 1888 in Chester, PA for service as a passenger vessel on the Fall River Line, which operated on Long Island Sound between New York City and Fall River, MA. It was withdrawn from service in 1912, and was dismantled in 1916 by the Scott Wrecking Co. of New London, CT. The model maker, Gilbert Taylor, was president of the Board of the Trustees of Webb Institute of Naval Architecture.
