It’s part of a series of “Townscapes” that has taken Mr. Weber’s van and trailer from Concord, Mass to St. Agustine, Fla during the last decade …

‘Every town has a personality,’ said Mr. Weber before returning to his home in Monterey, Mass ‘and what’s nice about Annapolis is that it’s upbeat. It’s civilized. I’ve never had so many people tell me good morning before.’

The way Mr. Weber describes it, the result is a panoramic view of the waterfront that also shows its Colonial and maritime heritage.

‘I want people to look at it and say “That’s it. That’s the way I see Annapolis!”
