The barque 'Queen Bee'
A portrait of the barque 'Queen Bee', shown broadside-on. The ship flies the flag with her name on the main mast. A lighthouse and coastal scene with houses can be seen in the distance on the left. There is other shipping in the painting, including a steamship billowing smoke on the right. Built in 1852 in Sunderland, the 'Queen Bee' was a full rigged 3-masted Barque with a wooden hull. She was registered in Dumfries, Scotland, and in 1857 the wooden hull was apparently sheathed in 'felt and yellow metal'.
