Ship Graveyards: Abandoned Ships, Boats and Shipyards
During the 1960s the Soviets decided to divert two rivers feeding the Aral Sea to irrigate the desert for cotton production. The result was a heavily contaminated basin littered with the rusting hulks of former fishing boats, a practically dead ecosystem and a decimated fishing industry. The amount of water lost is said to be equivalent to the complete draining of Lake Erie and Lake Ontario.
A jaunty, sensible woman’s outfit of the early 1870s designed for boating or seaside walking. A hemline just at the ankle indicates a garment intended for walking outdoors. The style of the dress has been inspired by the colours and stripes of sailors' uniforms. It is made of cotton, so it is easily washed and dried. Despite its practical use, the ensemble still incorporates the details of fashionable dress, with an overskirt in front and a bustle worn underneath at the back.
