This black and white photograph shows a model of the whaling ship 'Eclipse' which sailed from both Peterhead and Dundee. The photograph was taken from slightly above and on the starboard quarter, so shows the ship at a three quarters angle. She is three masted, with her funnel between the mizzen and main mast, and she is ship rigged, with her yards set square - at right angles to the direction of the hull. Some of her rigging is broken and tendrils of line can be seen hanging overboard to the wooden stand on which she sits. there are four whaleboats suspended on davits on her starboard side and another four, slightly less visible, on her port side.
