Fo'c'sle of a Berwick Smack
A portrait of two unknown sailors set among wooden beams in the fo'c'sle of a smack. Berwick smacks were sailing vessels that carried salmon and other cargo together with passengers, to London, before the coming of the railway. They were built for sailing fast and could also fight their way out of trouble. Two smacks set out for London every week and the passenger fare was one-and-a-half guineas.
