22-153 Schooner “Colonia” 1897 Larchmont Race


Larchmont Yacht Club Commodore Clarence Ashley Postley’s schooner Colonia (designed and built as a sloop in 1893 by Herreshoff to be a candidate in the 1893 America’s Cup) re-rigged as a schooner under the supervision of Archibald Cary Smith, who fitted her with a centerboard. She is pictured here on the last race of the Larchmont race week, which she won amidst the failure of her opponent the Emerald to start and a streak of other accidents. Photo 1897. Offered here is a reproduction from the original newswire photograph—an archival pigment print float mounted in a white trimmed wood frame with glass glazing. 12×16 inches framed.
