Shipping in the Bristol Channel

Merchant shipping is shown in the Bristol Channel, off the mouth of the Avon, in the year of the accession of Queen Victoria. The ship on the far left is shown in port-broadside view at anchor, with a quarter-gallery window open. It flies a red pennant and Blue Peter flag to indicate that it is preparing to sail, and the boat going alongside may be putting a pilot on board. The ship shown in port-bow view in the foreground may be its consort, since she is flying the same house pennant at the main. Both vessels are probably Bristol-owned West Indiamen and typical of the period, with 'painted ports' mimicking naval style - originally as a defensive measure.
