In the summer of 1959 was a deckhand on the old Quonset, the Block Island to Point Judith ferry, and one day I was called to the wheelhouse. Capt Norman Holden changed course a bit, which was unusual, and pointed out Paul sailing along in the cow horn.
We drew along side and Capt Holden handed me a quart bottle of Corby's rye in a brown paper bag and told me to take it down and give it to Paul. Loring said to tell Capt. Holden he was on his way to Maine and to call his office and tell them.

hi william..is that his Block Island Cowhorn?
I believe I have the Block Island Boat that was Paul Lorings. I have had it restored. I found it in Solomons Island, MD.
I would be interested in any information from friends and family about the history of the boat, Where originally built,
how it got to MD, any Logs, letters, pictures of Paul.. any of Paul's Dudd Sinker ProJo Newpaer cartoons, his propoganda charactitures of Adolf ( etc ) during the War. My plan is to bring the boat back to Narragansett Bay and Block Island in about a year. Setting up a website now, and need historic datta. email@example.com & Williamhallimages.com. I'll post again when new" Kestrel" site is up. Thank you all. Bill Hall
My husband's family has maybe 10-15 Paul Loring paintings....they were very good friends of his. We did hear that they were hard to price, b/c often times he or his wife(?) at one point were giving them away, not sure how true. the paintings are beautiful.
I have a large watercolor(print?), signed by Loring that I bought in Ocala Fl. Just saw the same for sale on line, who has the original??? I have some old pencil sketches by Loring that we found in my uncle's house on Steamboat Ave. in Wickford. They were friends and fellow boatmen. I miss the old Wickford. Would enjoy hearing any comments.

FOR SALE : A RARE March 1949 First Printing of a Map of some old Rhode Island Ferries of Lower Narragansett Bay and Sakonnet River by the famed cartoonist and artist Paul S. Loring, Published by Loring's Shanty, Wickford, R.I. Only serious minded buyers should contact me with your email address with regards to price and pictures. This early map appears to be hand drawn in black ink by Mr. Loring and yet it is unsigned. It measures approximately 14" x 18" and it is in a wooden frame. There is a sticker/seal on the back board that reads; CUSTOM PICTURE FRAMING GALERY- EXCLUSIVE GIFTS ARTIST'S MATERIALS, LORING'S SHANTY, END OF PLEASANT STREET, WICKFORD, R.I. It has depictions of several ferries and docks that were in operation over a period of time over the Narragansett Bay along with Newport and Little Compton and the Sakonnet River along with the entire Rhode Island water way and much, much more. It specifically indicates and accounting of the Bristol Ferry's Capital Outlay for 1753. Similar maps can be seen at the following web site: CONDITION: REQUIRES RESTORATION: I have not opened the back of the enclosed frame in order to inspect the map. The visual inspection of the framed map shows that there is some water stains to the right side of the map from poor storage and exposure. There are no tears and no folds. It also show some running of the black inked that was used in the drawings but yet and still if you consult with an art conservation professional you'll find that this can be taken care of. This is a very unique and attractive vintage map. I consider it to be in is overall in good condition.
I grew up in Wickford, RI near Ronnie Loring's Art Shanty. He featured may things by his father Paul Loring. I am looking to obtain a Paul Loring watercolor and would be intersted to know if you know of any avaiable. Thanks, NC in Va Beach
Curious as to the circa of the original images. Paul Loring was my Great Uncle- want to confirm that this is the same cartoonist. He worked for the Providence Journal for many years.
