Ship in difficulties among icebergs
Lantern slide made of glass with metal rim

Donated by Mr Albert A. Fuller, 1983
Museum number 1997-27-45

This lantern slide is of a drawing. It shows an auxiliary powered sailing ship sailing amidst a host of ice bergs and ice floes. The vessel has her topsails, jibs and spanker set and is also under steam, with her funnel placed well forward, nearly at her foremast. The only Dundee vessel with her funnel forward of the mainmast was 'Arctic II' so this drawing might be intended as a representation of her.
