BRITANNIA Coaling at Night at Aden

In: Ships
Part of our Paintings gallery

Artist/Photographer: William Ayerst INGRAM R.B.A.

Medium: Oil on canvas

Description:
BRITANNIA was the second of the celebrated four strong ‘Jubilee’ class launched in 1887. Here she is seen ‘coaling’ at night in the outer harbour at Aden. This awkward and messy procedure was only superceded in the 1920s when P&O converted the passenger liner fleet to oil fuel.

Featured Ship: BRITANNIA (1887)

Shipping Line: P&O STEAM NAVIGATION COMPANY
