Surviving a Storm

With the rain and gusty winds we’ve had here over the past week, I thought the following from an article titled “The Storm on the Scotch Coast: Casualties at Sea,” would be appropriate to share:

“Up till a late hour last evening there was no word of the large four-masted ship, Falls of Clyde, nearly 2,000 tons, which parted from a tug off Peterhead early on Friday morning, and was driven out to sea while being towed in ballast from Dundee to Liverpool.”

From The Morning Post (23 March 1885)

Guess she turned up eventually, eh? 😉
