Port quarter view of the Dutch barge 'Aurora', dried out, possibly at Swansea. Inversed digital file to create b&w positive
A paper calotype negative. A port quarter view of the Dutch ketch-rigged barge 'Aurora' (fl.1846) dried out, possibly at Swansea. Lines from her stern go to mooring buoys out of the picture. The name of the barge is written on the port side of the stern close to the rudder. The sails are furled along the gaffs and booms of the two masts. The name I. D. Kramer is written on the coaming to the companion way, just forward of the mizzen mast. The reverse of the negative has '588' written in pencil on the bottom left corner. In a letter dated 23 November 1846 from Calvert Jones to WHF Talbot, he lists a series of large negatives, including: '162. "Aurora" Dutch Galliot', which may relate to this vessel.
