"Old Georgetown On The
Potomac" by Paul McGehee. An era was coming to an end...before long,
the historic port of Georgetown would see the last of the great three-
and four-masted coastal schooners in these, the twilight years of the
age of sail. The 19th Century ended and took with it a way of life ...
the days remaining for commercial sail were few. "Old Georgetown On The
Potomac" accurately captures every detail of the working waterfront and
the town as it was in 1887...Georgetown University, the old Aqueduct
Bridge, the Francis Scott Key house, and more. "Old Georgetown On The
Potomac" is a major addition to McGehee's important series of American
ports in the days of sail and steam.
