A beautiful photo from the Lawrence Collection, with both sail and steam on display on the river Foyle in Derry. Mr. French's POV gives a superb view of the sailing ship, with all the detail on the masts and rigging in clear view. Interesting to see the timbers in the river in what appears to be a loose raft system. Was this cargo being loaded or discharged, or some form of jetty?

Photographer: Robert French

    The paddle-steamer is called 'SAMSON'. I wonder if the sailing ship is 'DELILAH'? Thanks again megazoom ...

    The Clyde ships site has PS 'Samson' registered in 1886 and scrapped in 1932 (a good innings). 'She' looks relatively newish in this photo. Different funnel markings in the site's photo - www.clydeships.co.uk/view.php?ref=9595 Thinking c. 1890 ?

    There's a name on the sailing ship but it's pretty illegible. Ends in "ES", possibly "LES"

    There's various jetties and landing stages marked on the map, but that timber looks more like cargo to me.

    Yes, it looks like they are trying to salvage flotsam. Or is it jetsam? The sailing ship seems to be anchored at the starboard bow, and 'Samson' is tugging the stern around into the wind (see ripples and flag). Hmmm ...
