" The Liverpool "
I am never supprised what shows up on a day to day basis
A pair of binoculars from the ship " The Liverpool "
this is a clip of divers swimming through the wreck
this story in the midst of being writen 8th Mar 2012
I am now researching if theses binoculars are off the this same ship or are they off another ship called "The Liverpool."
How many " The Liverpool " are there.
they look mid to late victorian pair of binoculars
no makers name
just impressed on the brass sights "THE LIVERPOOL" in Caps.
or may be the life boat
"THE LIVERPOOL" LEFT LONDON ON DEC 30th 1863. ON HER WAY SHE CALLED AT PLYMOUTH, PENZANCE, HENCE THE TIN INGOTS. SHE COLLIDED WITH THE LAPLATA WHICH HAD LEFT LIVERPOOL BOUND FOR LIMA PERU. BOTH VESSELS EVENTUALLY SANK, THE LIVERPOOL GOING DOWN FIRST.
The steamer SS Liverpool was carrying tin ingots from Cornwall and sank in 1863 after colliding with the barque Laplata, which had just left Liverpool on its way to Lima, Peru. The wreck lies just off the north coast of Anglesey and between Middle Mouse Island and the coast.
