The original Harvey was built in 1847 in the state of Maryland. She was an able sailing ship and worked out of the port of Galveston Texas. At the turn of the century, she was making several voyages a year between Galveston and the ancient Jewish port of Jaffa which at the time was still under the Ottoman empire. Her main cargo was hemp used to make ropes for the rigging of ships.
Purchased december 2015, build time about 2 months. It was my first attempt to build model kit ship.
