The Launching Of The Albert B. Robinson - Sharptown Maryland 1906

From the Salisbury Advertiser - 1906 - Sharptown news

The event of this week was the launching of the four masted schooner, Albert B. Robinson which slid into the water at 9:15 A.M. Monday. This was one of the many very beautiful launchings that have been witnessed here. She made a complete semicircle crossing the river and stopping only after she had gone a considerable distance in the Dorchester shore, and many visitors were present, including many ladies, which made the event a very enjoyable one. This schooner is being built by the Sharptown Marine Railroad Co for Capt. E. C. Bennett and others at a cost of $30,000.
