Arguably the first 'purpose built' icebreaker, the Yermak came into service in 1898. This work has an image size of 12 in. X 20 in.

Excellent! Location? Canadian? The colour on the funnels stand out beautifully.

Thanks Stephen. I'm not sure that the Yermak ever operated in Canadian waters as such but she did see a lot of service in Arctic waters. While she was was eventually scrapped, the Krassin, which is very similar, is now a museum ship in St. Petersburg. It is interesting how many of the classic icebreakers have survived as museum ships; at least six I am aware of (all coal fired), five of which I have had the privilege of touring.

Excellent picture. Reminds me of my visit to Krasin at SPB, although she looks completely different theses days. Moves are afoot to twin Krasin and Belfast, both ships having taken part in the Arctic convoys.

Fascinating ship in a spectacular setting. Like always your juxtaposition of color against the monochromatic back and foregrounds is on the money. Well done!

Thank you gentlemen. This 'Polar' series has been an interesting exercise to say the least. At least one more to go.
