The launch of HMS 'Trafalgar', 120 guns, at Woolwich, 21 June 1841
The Royal Dockyard at Woolwich was an important centre for naval shipbuilding from the reign of Henry VIII until its closure in 1869. Ship launches were a popular public spectacle and attracted large crowds. The 120 gun first rate 'Trafalgar' was launched at Woolwich Royal Dockyard in June 1841. She had a displacement of 2694 tons and during the Crimean War took part in the bombardment of Sebastopol in 1854.
