GLORY, Brooklyn, NY – 1927
A 1927 advertising postcard for Captain 'Jake' Martin's "GLORY" from Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn, NY. She was built in 1896 at Weymouth, MA as the 105-foot steam yacht "INDOLENT". She began her fishing career in 1914 when she was purchased by Captain Harry Hansen and she sailed from Brooklyn’s west side. In 1922, Captain Hansen sold the "INDOLENT' to his son-in-law, 'Jake' Martin who renamed her "GLORY".
During the summer of 1923, the "GLORY" was taken to a boatyard at Cold Spring Harbor, NJ (now called Wildwood) to be enlarged, or hipped out, but in a very unusual way. The boatyard built a larger hull that surrounded the old one, and then cut holes in the inner one so the space between the two hulls could breathe.
