This sepia print shows a scene on board 'Erik' during her whaling cruise of 1876. The posed photograph is of a group of men gathered around the ship's wheel, all looking toward the camera. Three men in the background are standing in an elevated position and there is a sail furled around a spar above. The men on the left are holding the broken screw of the ship.
