Mystic Seaport Museum delves into its collections to surface stories of design, engineering and style of the 20th century. Using the broad scope of the “streamline” phase in design history (1930s), the Museum will highlight 50 years of watercraft, engines, Rosenfeld photographs, and plans and drawings. “Streamlined: From Hull to Home” lets the Museum’s vast collections tell their own story, but it is also our own story; the history that lives within our own lifetimes and memories.

*Photo: REVERE was completed in 1941 by the Palmer Scott plant in Fairhaven, MA, from the design of B.T. Dobson of New Bedford for Revere Copper and Brass Inc. as an experimental craft. REVERE was all metal, all welded, streamlined cruiser fabricated from Cupro-nickel sheets (70 % copper and 30 % nickel). Negative number 1984.187.103043F made by Rosenfeld and Sons, October 28, 1941.
