Found this forum while researching a great aunt who sailed on the ship "John Ritson" in June of 1866 en-route to Buenos Aires. I have her letter to her mother and she mentioned a Captain Armstrong. I have been trying to find a picture of either that ship or a sister ship. I am a retired Canadian living in Tennessee. I have an OUPV Captains license and my website is www.tellicolady.com for more info. Happy to have given a little financial support to the forum.

Thanks Dave,
I had found this via Google, but was hoping for a more definitive photo. I guess that this is the best there is, as I have scoured many sources via Google. I appreciate your effort. This is a great site.
