Tuesday Travels. . .Edwin Fox, Picton

While we were in Picton we visited a historical ship which is dry docked in the harbour. The ship is the Edwin Fox which was a migrant ship and a pioneering freezing hulk. You can read its fascinating history here.

There was also a comprehensive museum of the the life of the ship.  The museum was engrossing and the actual ship was a credit to the hard work that volunteers had done to secure the survival of the wreck.

The ship shows how much deterioration happened to the wood when the ship was sitting as a wreck.

My father was a carpenter before he became a pilot and he would have been impressed with the woodwork in the construction of the ship.

This last photo gives you some idea of the scale.

This is an attraction in Picton that is well worth viewing.
