#637573 - 14th Dec 20117:48pmRe: Egremont Ferry
This photo is one of several of the same scene taken by Alfred Priestley of Egremont in the mid-1890s. The vessel moored mid-river in the background is the Cunard liner RMS Lucania, launched in 1893, which held the Blue Riband for the fastest Transatlantic crossings between 1894-1898. She was scrapped in 1909 after being damaged by fire while laid up in Huskisson Dock.
