Description
An old prison hulk moored in the River Thames, London, with paddle steamers and other sailing ships. Old merchant ships and naval vessels were often converted into floating prisons known as hulks in the 18th and early 19th centuries to ease overcrowding in gaols. Many of those housed in the hulks were destined for transportation to Australia, then a British colony - before the American War of Independence, many of them had been sent to the American colonies! Illustration from "Picturesque Europe - The British Isles" published by Cassell Petter & Galpin in 1875 (price 2/6d).
