American artist George M. Hathaway (1852-1903) painted the bark "Alice," a private vessel mastered by Captain William G. Kair (1850-1934). The three masted ship flies three flags at top, from left to right, with a "W," "Alice," and an American flag. Capt. Kair sailed the vessel from 1886 to 1894. It was part of a large fleet owned by apt. Jacob S. Winslow of Portland.Show Details
