In 2008, Bishop Museum announced that the ship was going to be scuttled in deep water unless a new owner could be found. The ship was down rigged in preparation for her disposal. The yards and top masts in the photo were welded to each other and the deck.
Four-mast barque Falls of Clyde, today lying in Honolulu as museum ship.
The photograph is probably taken from a tug that has given her a good "offing". The fore topgallant and the main upper topsail are being hoisted. There's a man on the fore royal loosening the gaskets.

I took this photo in Honolulu, Hawaii 1974-76. The converted barge in the foreground is a large Chinese restaurant (does anybody remember it, is it still there?)
Do any of you shipping buff's recognize the sailing ship in the background, if so what is her name??? I don't have the name anymore.
