Winter on Spa Creek (1985 Photo)

Posted in: Classic 20s, 1980s
In this photograph of Spa Creek, the Boucher's sheds are in the background (townhouses are there now) and located between Market St and Revell St in Annapolis.  Coughins (who owned Riptide) lived on Market Street, and Kramers (owners of Sea Witch and Stormy) lived on Revell St.  The Chesapeake 20s were frequently tied up there.  There was a railway beside the sheds so the boats could be hauled out and worked on.  The photos of Vinnie and Stormy on the railway were taken here.  Courtesy of Neal and Eleanor Kramer.
