    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.

    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.
