Friday photo - Archibald Russell

This afternoon's photo is of the Archibald Russell, a 4-masted barque built in 1905 by Scotts of Greenock.


Full details from the Clydebuilt site are available here.

There are lots of other pictures of her on a great site called Picture Australia, this site allows you to search online images from several different organisations like the National Archives of Australia, State Library of Victoria and the National Library of New Zealand.  Click here to see the pictures of the Archibald Russell.  The ship was used for a time to carry wheat to Australia from Europe which explains where there are several pictures of her in Australian collections.
