Widow's Walk - seeing the harbor from Her perspective

New Bedford, MA, United States
23 Kudos
Can't imagine being married to a sailor or captain. And for so many women who lived in the fishing and whaling villages of New England, wondering if your loved one would return home at all was a worrisome enterprise. An architectural treasure - the Widow's Walk - remains today, but gets renovations that I'm sure our historical brethren would never have imagined. Being able to see the Acushnet River and Buzzards Bay from the roofline of a New Bedford, Massachusetts home - looking for the ship masts that would harken your husband home - well, from the vantage point of this photo, I can kind of feel it.
