THE WAY WE WERE

The Scarborough News - - WELCOME TO YOUR NEWS - FROM THE MAX PAYNE COL­LEC­TION

The tall gabled build­ing dom­i­nat­ing this pic­ture on Scar­bor­ough’s Sand­side is the Sail Loft over­look­ing the har­bour. Two known Scar­bor­ough sail­mak­ers were Wyvill Todd and John Parkin who both had sail lofts near the har­bour. Stan­dard­i­s­a­tion of sails of a full rigged ship came in the late 18th cen­tury. A ship might have as many as 37 sails as its nor­mal equip­ment.
