Studio Boat All Around the World From the 1880s Through to the 1930s

All around the world, from the 1880s through to the 1930s, it would have been hard to find either a town or a tourist attraction that didn't have at least one studio with a painted ship on a painted ocean... or a lake, river, or pond.

Of course, this was just a flat prop that folks could stand or sit behind. There were even those where you could stand on the deck, and cling to the mast.

1. Riding the Painted Swells in Sweden

2. A Motley Crew is Lost at Sea in... Canada ?

3. Three Maritime Geisha in Old Japan

4. A Mother and Daughter in France

5. An American Tintype

6. A Russian Officer and His Friends
