Whaling ship 'Active' in Dundee dock
Negative made of glass

Museum number 1989-55-2

This glass negative shows the bow of the whaling ship 'Active' in Dundee dock. The figurehead of a man in early 19th century seaman's clothing is very visible underneath the bowsprit. The run of the ship aft from the foremast is fairly plain, with all the sails furled and the deck empty of people.
