Description

Launch of the four-masted schooner Doris Hamlin at Harrington in 1919.

The film shows a woman, possibly the wife of the ship owner, with a large bouquet of flowers as the ship is launched.

The film is part of the Edna Frye Collection. Edna Frye's father-in-law, Edwin M. Frye, owned the shipyard where the film was taken in 1919.
