Acquired by the Clark in memory of Eugene W. Goodwillie, (Institute Trustee 1959–74), 1974
"When I work at the Clark I get to walk by it a couple of times a day, and I always slow down a bit to look at it again. Things seem calm in what could be a busy time—five ships at dock and two more at a mooring. The tide seems to be out and people don't seem to be in a hurry."
