East Indiaman Amsterdam

East Indiaman Amsterdam

Berthed at the Nederlands Scheepvaartmuseum, or Netherlands Maritime Museum. We did go aboard this replica of the Amsterdam, built in 1748. She departed on a voyage to Asia a year later and was wrecked off the English coast near Hastings. The wreck is still there.

it seems a bit denuded without any sail, still a fine tribute to that golden age of shipping...

Very nicely composed with this perspective and angle. Very good detail and the people on the poop deck add a sense of scale. "V"

splendid even if a replica...one can imagine it racing the 'Cutty sark' (which is at Greenwich) back from the 'east indies'
