Since 1888, the cameras of the Beken family of Cowes, on the Isle of Wight, have captured classic sailing shots, from the magnificent cutters, schooners, and J class yachts of the '20s and '30s to today's oceangoing ships. This image was created from the original glass plate negative and finished in sepia tones. This frame is finished in burr walnut.
