The steel-hulled steam tug "Hercules" was built in 1907 by John H. Dialogue and Sons, Engineers and Shipbuilders, in Camden, New Jersey. This sturdy 151-foot tugboat worked San Francisco Bay and the surrounding waters of the Pacific for decades and can now be found along the waterfront piers in San Francisco, near Fishermans Wharf.

Prints can be ordered and shipped or picked up locally at my gallery north of Boston, right along the seacoast. Shipping costs shown below include insurance and USPS Priority Mail, to the US Midwest, as an average of current charges. Shipping to an address on the East Coast will be less expensive and I will credit you for the difference from the price quoted (Etsy doesn't give us any other way to handle this).

Minimum frame size is 11" x 14". All printing is done individually with archival inks and fine printing papers; the matting, mounting, and framing is also done with archival materials by an excellent local professional frame shop, Post Road Framers (Rowley MA).

The image shown on this page is compressed for web viewing and is of reduced resolution with a copyright watermark. The fine art photograph that you will receive is very sharp and printed individually per order, without any watermark. The image is copyright protected by the photographer, Dave Saums.

Sizes Available, Professionally Framed Fine Art Print:
16" x 20" $ 165.00
20" x 24"

Larger sizes up to 30" in one dimension may be custom ordered. Please note that shipping charges now are based on weight and carton dimensions and shipping must be quoted per request for larger size prints. I package all framed prints for sale and have always used only art-quality glass, never plexiglass or plastic. Standard frame stock used is Larson Juhl "Tribeca", a very refined black wooden frame with delicate thin ribs; the frame is attractive with both b/w and color photographic images and works well with contemporary and traditional styles of furniture and settings. No framing should be bold to the point of distracting the observer's eye from the image itself. Please call or email to order sizes larger than the 16"x20 finished print listed here.

Prints are signed, titled, and dated in pencil in the lower border. All prints are numbered in a limited series, as one would expect in any art gallery. All prices are for framed prints, ready to hang in your home or office, just as I would do in mine.

Many more images may be seen at my gallery, Mountains-of-the-Sky Photography Gallery, at 14 Cedar Street, Studio 111, in Amesbury MA. Photographyic images include lighthouses, barns, landscapes, railroads, local New England scenes, and landscapes from Yosemite, England, Canada, as well as across the United States. I am located in a wonderful old 1871 brick mill building, where carriages were built in the fourth quarter of the nineteenth century and up into the late 'teens in the twentieth. This fine building is near the center of downtown Amesbury and contains dozens of artists and art-related studios and businesses. See my website for hours: www.mountainsofthesky.com; please call or email before planning to visit.
