    Default Ships gallery

    I am starting a thread of some wonderful old postcards and pictures of ships throughout the age of steam. The first is of the Paddle tug Electric built on the Tyne in 1883, she worked until 1912. The second is the Emily ,a schooner rigged steamship ,built in 1878 in South Shields by Readheads. She was wrecked while on passage from Hull to Norkopping in Sweden in december 1906

    Here we have the Isle of Man Steam Packet Co's Queen Victoria of 1887,she was the fastest paddle steamer of her day passing the Wallesy shore.
    The Ben-My -Chree was another I.O.M liner and she was built in 1927 ( I went to school camp on her in 1954 )
    Last ,but not least is the Aberdeen of 1881 ,built in Glasgow, she was a barque rigged screw ship and was in the Aberdeen White Star Line. She was the first ocean going ship to have triple expansion engines. Sold to the Turks before the First World war,she was renamed Halep and was sunk by a British submarine in the Sea Of Marmaris in 1915.

    I went to school camp on her much later, which shee had a black hull. She had a long service life. The IoM ships had steam turbines.

    The familiar red funnels of this ship show she is a Cunard liner ,it is the Lucania ,built 1883 for the Liverpool to U.S.A service. She is shown leaving the Mersey with a very old skyline on her starboard side.
    The barque rigged wooden paddle steamship is the Europa of 1847. Built in Glasgow for Cunards British and North American Steam Packet service whose pennants she is flying on her main truck; the U.S ensign on her foretruck shows that she is about to enter American waters.

    I have had the devils own job to down loadthis thumbnail,this is the only format Icould do it in.
    The picture is of the Royal Mail Stem packet company liner ,the Atlantis,She was built in 1913 as the Andes and served on the South American run until the great depression of 1929. Rather than lay her up Royal Mail changed her name and sent her cruising and she is shown here in the fjords in 1930.

    The first picture is of the Denbighshire,this is a brigantine-rigged steamship that was built in 1899 for the Shire of David Jenkins and Co. This is from a painting done by Chinese artists working on a production line basis specializing in ship painting in the 19th century . WhenI next show one of their paintings I shall denote it by putting a capital C after the picture.
    The second picture comes from the same studio and is of the Blue Funnel liner ,the Achilles ,she is barquentine rigged and was built in 1866, one of the initial trio of ships that established Alfred Holts as a viable shipper to the Orient.

    Top picture is of the Wallasey ferries,Iris and Daffodil on their return from the raid on Zeebrugge in 1918.They are battle scarred and King George V was so impressed by the part they played in that raid that he ordered them to be renamed Royal Iris and Royal Daffodil.
    The second picture is of the White Star Liner Oceanic returning to the Mersey from the U,S.A., New Brighton Tower is shown just off her bow,the White Star tender Magnetic is off her port bow.

    I just love these postcards,sent in a bygone age when the world was a much bigger place and everywhere was faraway.
    The Strathaird like a gleaming white castle set in an azure sea,surrounded by bumboats full of exotica,the sunblasted mountain in the background telling of a land so hot that you can feel the blessed sun burning your cold northern skin. A British and India liner is moored on the port side ,could this be Aden and our ships be bound for the Orient?
    And then there is the Ranpura,majestic as she towers over the over the bustling launches and feluccas,this looks like Port Said ,the home of great literature and exotic herbs,plus those wonderful post cards.

    I have been researching my Great uncle Austin Owens who was in the Merchant Navy. I have found he was on " BALTIC 11 " in 1932, A White Star Line ship as part of the weekly Liverpol-New York route. In WW2 he was on " BRITISH TRADITION " in 1942 and " LA PAMPA " in 1944 working as a Greaser.

    He worked after the war also. probably on a lot more ships than i have found.

    My Nans cousin was aboard " THE BEDFORDSHIRE " when it sank in 1942 off Ocracoke Island USA. He was only 18.

    I am a total Newbie with Ships so i am loving these threads you guys are posting keep them coming.

    Hi Spike ,thank you for your kind comments,it is nice to know someone out there is interested. I was intrigued to hear about your sea going relatives.Should you ever need help in your researches you could do no better than to log on the Mercantile Marine site,there is a guy on there called Billy McGee who is the acknowledged master of M.N. history.
    And talking about history,here are two more from my archives....
    First is the Geelong of 1904,she was built for the Blue Anchor Line as an Emigrant carrier.P.O acquired the line and Blue Anchor disappeared without trace. The Geelong was sunk while in Convoy through the Mediterrannean after colliding with another British ship.
    The second postcard is of the Clan Matheson ,built on the Clyde in 1919 and the fourth ship in the Clan Line to carry that name.

I sailed on her last voyage, to Cape Town, Fremantle. Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbanme, Penang, Singapore Meekong River Viet Nam, Aden ,Suez, Algiers, Marseilles, Liverpool, then to the Clyde for breaking in 1955

    Here is the BALCLUTHA preserved in San Francisco, I have been on board many times,
    Built in 1886 on Clyde, She rounded the HORN 17 times in 13 years. 1899 sold to Hawaii 1902 sold to Alaska Packers, In 1933 she appeared in the film Mutiny on the Bounty, Charles Laughton and Clark Gable.
    In 1954 she was sold for preservation to San Francisco, a Very interesting ship to go aboard if your in Frisco.

    Couple of Thos. & Jos Harrisons here,the first is the Wanderer shown being piloted past Dumbarton Rock on the River Clyde, an old coal burner.

    Second is the first motorship of the line, and the first new build after WW11, the Herdsman. She is shown down in the Thames Estuary,passing a nice couple of sailing barges.
