Gentlemen On The Coronet Yacht Harlem River 1905 (Photographs)

There was nothing like a leisure ride in a glamorous wooden like The Coronet Yacht with N.Y. Launch & Engine Works, Morris Heights, 20th Century Marine Engine, on the Harlem River, 1905.

The boat chugged up and down the coastal seas of Morris Heights on the east side and 180th Street in Harlem, NY, on the west side.

These mahogany yachts that were beautifully made by master craftspeople who poured more than 1,000 hours into building a single vessel. We think the photograph was taken during the spring or early summer as the captain with a bow tie stares at us as he guided this classic wooden vessel on the calm waters of the Harlem River.

For centuries boats and sailboats ran north and south on the Harlem River with New Jersey across the pond.
