Thread: Tall Ship Glenlee

    Default Tall Ship Glenlee

    While visiting my daughter in the U.K. she took me to see the last surviving Clyde-built tall ship, the Glenlee. She was launched in 1896 and circumnavigated the world four times before being retired. She now resides at the Riverside Museum in Glasgow. Please see the photos below:

    Thanks for posting this Bill.
    I was unaware of her existence.

    The Business of the commander-in-chief is first to bring an enemy fleet to battle on the most advantageous terms to himself, (I mean that of laying his ships close on board the enemy, as expeditiously as possible); and secondly to continue them there until the business is decided.

    I must admit that I had never heard of the Glenlee, either, but it is good that she is being cared for and is open to visitors. Thank you for sharing this, Bill.

    Nice. Looks a bit like a smaller version of the Peking.
