CityStream: Restoring the Virginia V & Signs of the Time
CityStream: Restoring the Virginia V & Signs of the Time

Long before automobiles drove us around, the Mosquito Fleet transported people, produce, and even livestock up and down Puget Sound. The fleet once comprised dozens of ships, but now the Virginia V is the only wooden steamer from that era still in operation. And as she prepares to turn 100, the steamship is undergoing a major renovation! Work on the vessel is being done at a storied shipyard with a sign collection that celebrates Ballard's past. Nearby, we'll meet another business that works on the water and is known for being a little pushy! Host Enrique Cerna has these stories from Pacific Fishermen Shipyard.
