Footnotes

  • The Black Ball Line of Trans-Atlantic Packets was founded in New York in 1817 and formed the first regularly scheduled Trans-Atlantic service between Liverpool and New York. The present lot depicts the packet Albion, built for this purpose in 1819.

    Packets were taken out in all weather, maintaining that time was important to the passengers and fast delivery of mail and cargo. Consequently, the service life of the packets was notoriously short. After only three years of service, the Albion succumbed to a gale off the Irish Coast near Kinsale, claiming forty-six of the fifty-four crew members.
