NAUTILUS, Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn NY – 1931
This vintage advertising postcard depicts Captain Sparta 'Sparks' Telesca's "NAUTILUS" from Sheepshead Bay. Built in 1883, she was one of the oldest vessels in the Sheepshead Bay fleet at the time. She was later purchased by Captain Bob Wood who continued to sail her from Sheepshead Bay. The "NAUTILUS" then sailed as a launch for a dry dock company in New York City until she was dismantled in 1949.
