Caroline Mills
The schooner Caroline Mills is shown at sea, leaving San Francisco, flying her name flag and the American Flag. The artist, William Alexander Coulter, has signed and dated it in the lower left corner. Preliminarily, we have identified no other image of this schooner, so the white hull, green stripes, and rigging are probably only recorded in this painting.
