Object details:

Object ID P63CAL
Description A whole plate size salted paper print. A view from the port side of the upper deck on (possibly) the barque Mary Dugdale (1835) looking aft towards the poop accommodation doors and windows. The deck in front of the photographer is covered with untidy coils and runs of rope. On the left is the main hatch coaming with the hatch partially uncovered. The main mast jeer bitts, containing the running rigging belaying pins, can be seen behind the hatchway and in front of the main mast. Reverse has been annotated in pencil by Admiral Ballard in 1934: 'Deck of merchantman in 1935'. The identity of the ship is tentative, as Calvert Jones lists negative in his letter dated 3 November 1846 to WHF Talbot, two of which fit the broad description [BL, LA46-123]. These are '120. View on deck “Mary Dugdale”, and '148. Scene on deck, poop cabins & Mary Dugdale', both are large calotype negatives. Jones had arrived back in England from his European trip in early June 1846 to sort out the afffairs of his dead uncle. The reverse has '584' inked in the bottom left corner. This original print is made from the original negative P25CAL.
Date made circa July to pre November 1846
