Schooner Amy Knight ('Headers on the Banks) by Thomas M. Hoyne
Peabody Museum of Salem, Russell W. Knight Collection.
"The people of Marblehead are a peculiar race; and
as utterly unlike their neighbors as though they belonged to another
age or country. The lines of their character are perhaps a little less
than formerly, from their wider intercourse in later years with other
places, but still they are deep and permanent,
strong and full of meaning.
-- Joseph Story (1779-1845) was an associate justice
of the U.S. Supreme Court
