Ship ‘County of Peebles’

After a coat of paint ~ Punta Arenas circa 2004

A copy of original design drawings (by Barclay Curle of Glasgow) was located in Chile (24th Dec’2009). After further detailed research, a ‘well-worn’ original drawing, dated 1874, was eventually retrieved from a ‘cubby-hole’ in a Glasgow storage vault in 2011. The familiar outlines of the side-elevation and plan view of this first 4-masted iron-ship are shown. This exciting find adds to the fund of knowledge being accumulated about this historically significant vessel.
