Exceptional photo of the Cunard liner Scythia docked in Boston. She was built in 1874 and scrapped in 1899. Interestingly, her mizzen mast was of wood to avoid compass interference. The photo measures 10″ x 8″ and is in excellent condition. Stamped on the back “Society for the Preservation of New England Antiquities” and the address. The original glass negative must have had a crack, but images for this ship are so rarely seen that it’s definitely worth having. There’s a lot going on in this very nautical scene.
