Erato - homeport Särö

Recommended Posts

Maybe someone is interested in a few old photos taken by my great grandfather. All of them are taken around 1880-1900

 

Can not add them in the running text since there seems to be some problems with Windows 8.1 / IE11 on this site.

 

1 Erato - owned by my great grandfather and used for pleasure and also in his business - he exported wooden bobins for spinning machines used in the British textile industry.

 

2 Erato in Travemûnde

 

3 4 5 Marstrand harbour on the Swedish west coast. Marstrand is known for being icefree almost any winter and also because king Oscar II used to spend part of the summer there. The Swedish gentry used to follow behind.

 

6 Marstrand  - I think it is the Royal Yacht that you can see in the background

 

Got a couple of pictures outside of these  - e.g. ships crew - if anyone is interested

Nice photographs, and interesting to have a personal connection to the subject matter.  Your ancestor's ship has very fine lines - I can imagine she was a fast sailer.

Shamrock,

 

Great photos.   The issue is with IE11.  I'm not sure if IE11 is the default install from the factory on Win 8 or if it was an update.   See if it's installed as an update.  If it was, it can be uninstalled and IE will roll back to IE10.  Use Google and "uninstall IE11 Windows 8" as keywords and without the quotes.

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
