On February 11,1907 paddle wheel steamer “Larchmont” sailing out of Providence, bound for New York, and the coal laden schooner “Harry Knowlton” heading for Boston, collided in the dead of night, during a fierce blizzard. The “Larchmont sank in less than half an hour. Most of the passengers, who survived the collision, froze to death in zero degree temp and gale force winds., claimed 143 lives and 19 people survived. The worst maritime disaster of the 20th century.On painting is showing moment on 10 AM next day when volunteers Block Island fishermen, who had heard about collision and braved the stormy seas to try rescue noticed part of upper superstructure with small group of people and one was giving sign by hand. Half of them was frozen and 6 rescued. Size of painting 24 X 36 inches. The first frozen person is my wife and i am two times along edge. The image of people is small so i added next image a clip of survivors.
