    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.

    Deprived of its unique dockland waters Liverpool
    becomes a Venice without canals, just another city, no
    longer of special interest to anyone, least of all the
    tourist. Would we visit a modernised Venice of filled in
    canals to view its modern museum describing
    how it once was?

    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.
