The Birkdale', showing the saloon with captain and mate
On 22 April 1920, Everett sailed from Bristol for Sabine, Texas, as third mate of the barque 'Birkdale'. This voyage resulted in many drawings and paintings. The 'Birkdale, built in 1892, was the last barque to fly the red ensign. She spent nearly all her working life in the Chilean nitrate trade and was wrecked on the Chilean coast after catching fire in 1927. This small, intimate, impressionistic image shows Captain Walmsley and Mr McWatters, the mate of the barque, in the saloon.
