The "Water Ways: Mid-Atlantic Maritime Communities" on-line exhibition
is made up of many stories of the people who live on or near the water. These stories are told through
written explanations, through photographs of people and places, and through audio clips and video clips
that allow you to hear the voices of coastal residents.
You can "build your own maritime story" using the instructions provided here. The story can be as simple
as a single photograph with a caption. Or, they can be as in-depth as the sample stories and photographs
collected and assembled by Harold Anderson.
Every picture tells a story! Capture your own maritime picture and story by following the instructions
offered here. Image courtesy Smithsonian Institution.
