"Brings into view a many-sided picture of the harbor over time: its uses, its people, 'the moods and identities of the waterways,' its role in ritual and commemoration, and its presence as an inspiration for not only artists but for other kinds of vision as well . . . A delight to read." —Peter Cochrane, author, Colonial Ambition
