Print No. 124 signed by the artist Carroll Thayer Berry, an American printmaker born 1886 in New Gloucester, Maine. Number 124 is a 1946 wood engraved print of Rockport Harbor when the Windjammer fleet is in. The white schooner is the "Eva A. Cullison" from Camden. The artist's studio is seen in the print, the brick building up the hill, second from the left. The building stands today. In 1947, thirty of the artist's works were featured in a gallery show at the Library of Congress and included an imprint from this series. The imprint also appeared in Print Collector's Quarterly in the late 1940s. The artist did not number his works and kept few records. It is estimated that approximately 350 to 400 impressions were made of number 124. The artist died in 1978.(Source: The Downeast Printmaker, Carroll Thayer Berry by Elwyn Dearborn, published by Downeast Books in 1983)
