This Great Western paddle steamer moored close to Waterford makes a fine Poole image to begin the week.
With thanks today to AndyBrii
, O Mac
and especially ofarrl
, we have confirmation of subject, date, and a concrete location for this image. Specifically, it is understood that this is the paddle steamer PS Milford
, which operated on the GWR's Milford Haven to Waterford route from 1874. It is pictured on the North Wharf of Waterford, close to Ferrybank - likely later in its career, prior to the ship being broken-up in 1901.
