Elissa

Tall ship Elissa:

The barque Elissa, built in 1877.
The original Elissa was for 13 years sailing under norwegian flag, with my great grandfather as captain and part owner.
His name was Herman Andersen, and the name of the ship was Fjeld.
Elissa has been restored to perfect sailing condition, and harboured in Galveston, Texas, at the Texas Seaport Museum, Pier 21, (Galveston Historical Foundation).
