ssel, called the Rebecca.
It seems very probable that these vessels were built on the site of what was afterwards called Foster's shipyard.
And now, so far as the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries are concerned, we have come pretty much to thelowest on the river, and will take them in their order, going up the stream:
I. A ship-yard at the foot of what is now Foster's court, off Riverside avenue. It was first used by Sprague & James, in 1817.
Afterwards used by Foster & Taylor, and fFoster & Taylor, and finally by J. T. Foster.
In 1847 Isaac Hall built one vessel here.
2. Yard on Riverside avenue, opposite the end of Park street. Established in 1803 by Thatcher Magoun; afterwards used by Curtis & Co., Paul & J. O. Curtis, F. Waterman & H. Ewell, . & H. Rogers9
