Ship Windsor Castle

30 x 40 cm (15.5 x 11.75 inches)

The Windsor Castle, 1250 tons
The Windsor Castle was a fast ship built in Sunderland in 1857. She was very nearly lost when she was dismasted in a storm around the Cape Horn. With the main mast and all its gear and the mizzen top and yard dragging in the water the ship was severely strained and leaked badly. The passengers had to be set to work the pumps for many days until the crew had cut the wreckage away and re-rigged the ship. She eventually reach Rio and after dry docking and a refit and after 269 days reached Gravesend.

This lithograph was made in the 1950s by litho-offset on very high quality, thick paper. The paper is creamy white and in excellent condition.
