From war-time welders, fishermen’s wives, and net makers to fishpackers, pilots and boardinghouse keepers, Staying the Course explores the diverse roles and stories of the women involved in the maritime commerce of Portland from both historical and contemporary perspectives, and is a premier collaboration of Maine Maritime Museum and the Osher Map Library. The exhibit  is illustrated with photographs from Maine Maritime Museum’s collection, as well as historic maps and images from the Osher Map Library’s collection.
