A sepia toned photo postcard by Gibson & Sons, featuring the wreck of the Castleford (built 1883). She was wrecked in June 1887 at Crebawthen Rocks, Scilly Isles whilst on a voyage from Montreal to London with cattle. Very light corner wear and clean to the front with a little surface marking. Small annotation to the reverse, and a little ageing and extremely light residue marking from previous mounting. (VG)
