LADY SAVILE

Tender LADY SAVILE as seen from the Dutch KNSM passenger ship COLOMBIA by the photographer Willem van de Poll. In Dover the ship took a.o. mail bags aboard. The Colombia was bound for the West-Indies (a.o. Curacao and Surinam).

By the way, interesting vessel in the background.

I believe that for many years this Lady Savile was permanently moored to the foreshore at Leigh-on-Sea and was used as the headquarters for the Essex Yacht Club.
