The Ornaments.....

Myrtle, the cat has offered her services as a real live ornament. For those interested in shipping... the painting on the wall is of the Opawa one of the New Zealand’s Shipping Company’s fleet of sailing ships. She is turning about to pick up the captain who had jumped overboard in a suicide attempt. A tiny head bobbing in the sea can be seen near the left-hand horizon. A lifeboat with crew is very near the bobbing head. A slice of maritime history.
