HMS 'Trafalgar' in Grand Harbour, Malta, 11 March 1852
'H.M.S. Trafalgar / Capt. Greville - Malta / March 11th 1852'. A finely drawn port broadside view of the ship, from slightly aft and not completely finished, with her topmasts struck down and her rigging under refit after the storm she suffered in February (see PAI0863 and PAI0864). Unlike many of Mends's drawings, a good number of crew are included giving a sense both of activity and the ship's great size: her reflection in the calm water is also effective. She flies a blue ensign and has a boat lying astern and a local dghaisa alongside, and may be lying under the walls of Valletta (see verso of PAI0864 for a related view). The 'Cape Carthage...' inscription top right refers to the drawing on the recto of the next page, PAI0866.
