Robert Lindsay Smallidge, Sr. with His Boat Models

Robert Sr., known in the family as "Lindsay," was a craftsman. The vessel in the center, on the back step, was a model of the "Falucca," a lateen rigged pirate ship. "All Lindsay’s models were made from scratch, frequently from plans he had found in periodicals, or purchased from a supply house. Sometimes when he didn’t have plans, but was asked to make a model by the owner of a sailboat, he took photos and measurements of the boat in the water and drew his own plans. Lindsay made many things including: sleds, hunting knives, hatchets, crooked knives, canes, chests, weather vanes, half model sailboats, full model sail boats, water line models, dioramas etc.
