Photo Gallery > Ed Leaf Ship Models 

Ed Leaf told fascinating tales about his exquisite ship models making the ships come alive to everyone at the Shipman Mansion’s first fall lecture. His ships included an 1890 American monitor, an 1805 Schooner gunboat with rotating cannons that fought in the Mediterranean, an 1880 whaling schooner, an Ohio river towboat, the USS New Jersey, a Russian light cruiser (made locally at Cramps Shipyard and informally known as the Wanderer because during the Russo-Japanese war, it was sunk and later salvaged by the Japanese who found it so well made, they kept it – only to have it reclaimed by the Russians late on) and the queen of the show, Le Couronne, a 17th century French ship that took Ed about a year to build.
