300 piece puzzle of a postcard image depicting 'the chase' of whaling, a scary and exciting experience for those who spent years at sea hunting whales. The original is in the collection of the Newport Historical Society. Puzzle will measure 11 inches by 17 inches when completed and is packaged in a tin case.

While whaling ships did not depart from Newport harbor, many Newport men, and some women, whaled for a living including John Scott DeBlois. Captain DeBlois earned the reputation of a hero after he and his crew of the Ann Alexander escaped a whale attack in 1851.
