Woman with Relics - Notecards
Women with Relics notecards portray Caribbean island life away from the harbors. The photos document life in the late 1940, before tourism impacted the island cultures.
The photographs were taken by Carleton Mitchell and are a selection from the over 20,000 photographic images he donated to the Mystic Seaport.
It was Carleton Mitchell's boyhood dream to become a writer and sailor. It was a dream he fulfilled to perfection. As yachting historian John Rousmaniere has said, Carleton Mitchell "set the highest standards of performance as a writer, as a photographer, and as a sailor."
