KARL SHIELDS: Old Boat at Point White

KARL SHIELDS: Old Boat at Point White


Oil on stretched canvas. Framed.

Dimensions: 24" x 24".

This still stands on Point White, Bainbridge Island, Washington. The pylons are from World War II, at which time there was a dock going into the water where the old Mosquito Fleet came in or was moored.

The Puget Sound Mosquito Fleet was a large number of private transportation companies running smaller passenger and freight boats on Puget Sound and nearby waterways and rivers. This large group of steamers and sternwheelers plied the waters of Puget Sound, stopping at every waterfront dock. The historical period defining the beginning and end of the Mosquito Fleet is ambiguous, but the peak of activity occurred between the First and Second World Wars.
