HM Turret Ship 'Devastation' at Spithead on the occasion of the naval review in honour of the Shah of Persia, 23 June 1873
In 1873, the Shah of Persia made a state visit to England where he was received and entertained in a style without precedent in British history. The Naval Review at Spithead on 23 June 1873 was held in his honour, and he was present on the Royal Yacht 'Victoria and Albert II', here shown on the extreme left. The ship in the foreground is the 'Devastation', the first battleship without sails to be built for the Royal Navy. Other shipping can be seen on the right as part of the review, dressed overall.
