Look like Nova Scotia or New Brunswick vessels, though the coastline is more Nova Scotia (or, actually, parts of the St. John river, though they didn't build ocean going schooners on the river) Not the Fundy side of Nova Scotia either - tidal range isn't huge enough. The houses say Canadian maritimes too.

That many big vessels building at one time suggests a lot of skill in one place - somewhere 'round Lunenburg maybe? Though I'd have expected the area to be more built up - a lot of Lunenburg will have been built and providing services to the industry by the time this pic was taken.

How close am I?

I am impressed. You gave a real game show answer, too, laying out your logic like you did. :)

Good show!

Peace,
