PS Lord of the Isles (I) (later Jupiter, later Lady of the Isles)

This splendid picture shows PS Lord of the Isles (I) taken from the bridge of PS Woolwich Belle circa 1890/5. The funnel of Woolwich Belle at this time was retractable in order for her funnel to be low enough to go under the bridges in the Pool of London. A close look at the funnel on the left of this picture shows the design quite nicely. The image comes from a recently discovered glass plate negative and shows the two steamers in the Thames Estuary near Southend on Sea
