Grounded schooner, Swansea

Location: Swansea

Keywords: Ship Harbour Wales

View of a grounded schooner complete with sails. The masts of a second vessel are just visible, beyond and above the schooner occupying the foreground.

This is probably the photograph that Jones titled, 'Schooner aground. Kilvey background.' if that is the case it would have been taken before, 3 November 1846.
