Summary

The East Indiaman 'Trafalgar'
The 'Trafalgar', flying Green's Blackwall line house flag at the main, is shown in port-broadside view hove to off Dover, having just picked up or put off a pilot from the cutter which appears in front of her. 'Trafalgar', 1178 tons (new measure), was built in London in 1848 for Green's Blackwall line and registered for the London to Calcutta run. There is a stern view of another vessel on the left, which may also be the 'Trafalgar'. W.J. Huggins, to whom the picture was formerly attributed, cannot be the artist since he died in 1845. The style of the sea and sky suggests that a more likely possibility may be James Harris, who did another of the 'Roxburgh Castle' (BHC3594) for the Greens in 1849.
