I can't believe that I've been sitting on this story by Standard-Times reporter Jennifer Lade (who has made it to the semi-finalist round in the S-T's Last Reporter Left Writing reality show). Apparently, the sexist-and-noninclusively-titled-but-sure-to-not-bother-anyone-in-The-SouthCoast...
And also for filming Sixties cult television shows starring Patrick McGoohan.
...winning design for the New Bedford Fishermen's Monument was revealed Friday night at the New Bedford Whaling Museum... Joseph Ingoldsby's design of a granite fishing vessel was chosen from six finalists by the Fishermen's Tribute Fund committee. The completed design will grace the northeast corner of Fort Taber by the harbor entrance.
"I think it's important that New Bedford have a monument that's going to stand the test of time," the Marshfield artist said at the fundraising event, billed as The Big Reveal... Ingoldsby said he spoke with naval architects, fishermen and fishing boat captains as he did research for his design.(no mention of whether he spoke with the architects of Portmeirion, Wales)
It calls for a granite structure based on the eastern rig scallop boat. The granite will match the nearby Fort Taber, he said, and the deck of the boat could be used for ceremonies and celebrations.
