Whaling ship under sail in pack ice
Lantern slide made of glass with metal frame

Donated by Mr Robert Ferguson in 1975

This lantern slide shows a whaling ship under sail in pack ice. The vessel is ship rigged - square sails on all three masts - but the sails on her mizzen are furled. There is also smoke coming from her funnel. There are men visible on deck as well and whaleboats with whaling guns mounted in their bows.
