Cape Ann Museum Debuts Schooner Model
April 13, 2011
The Gloucester Times reported that the Cape Ann Museum has added a new ship model to its collection. The model is a replica of the Gloucester fishing schooner Elsie, and was created by model-maker Erik Ronnberg Jr., who spent 8 months completing the model.
The schooner Elsie, designed by Capt. Thomas McManus, was built in 1910 at the Arthur D. Story Shipyard in Essex, and became a member of Gloucester’s famous salt-cod fishing fleet. On her maiden trip, she landed over 280,000 pounds of salt cod in Gloucester.
