Photographer's Note

This is my Independence Day post from an outing at the Salem, Ma. harbor. I liked the flowing flag and the masts of the "Frienship of Salem" ship.

I included the Custom House to the left of the ship because it is where Nataniel Hawthorne supposedly hatched the idea of his novel, "The Scarlet Letter", while he worked there to pay his bills. His friend, President Pierce, installed him in this federal government position when custom houses generated income for the federal government in the same way as income taxes do today...

Happy Independence Day!
