This photograph is of the Schooner th "Crystal Spring" registered at Dundalk, Ireland - from Liverpool for Bude, carrying coal. She was tacking waiting for the tide to enter Bude harbour when due a lack of wind or being too close to the shore she went aground under Maer High Cliff. Upon the Lifeboat's arrival at the scene the two crew, Captain and Mate, were being pulled up the cliff by the Rocket Brigade. The delay of the Lifeboat was attributed to the Harbour Master refusing to fill the locks before there was 10 feet of water outside, which would support the gates.This print was made using the original S Thorn glass negative.
