Weekly Photo Challenge: Community

“MERCHANDISE! Merchandise!  Tortoiseshell, spices,
 Carpets and Indigo sent o’er the highseas;
 Mothero’Pearl from the Solomon Isles
 Brought by a brigantine ten thousand miles.
 Rubber from Zanzibar, tea from NangPo,
 Copra from Haiti, and wine from Bordeaux;
 Ships, with topgallants and royals unfurled,
 Are bringing in freights from the ends of the world … ”

                                              – J Milton Hayes

(Did you notice that the photos above, not the one underneath your post comment, all the words were backwards?) 🙂 (Once an editor, always an editor.) 🙂
