Newport Harbor Puzzle
300 piece puzzle of James Nicholson's, Newport Harbor, packaged in an attractive tin box. Puzzle measures 11" by 17" when completed.
Nicholson, a self taught painter, immigrated to Newport from Scotland and worked as a master joiner on several summer cottages. This image of Newport Harbor beautifully illustrates a typical day in Newport's working waterfront in the late 1800's, including the Eolus, a steamship which brought thousands of visitors to this city on the sea.
