Wreck of the German brigantine Albert Wilhelm, Lelant Sands, Lelant, Cornwall. Wrecked on 16th October 1886

The photograph shows somewhere in the region of a hundred men and boys either viewing, or on the deck, of the wreck, even although it is high and dry on the sands. There is still a hard gale blowing as can be perceived by the full sails and the fact that the crowd on the beach are sheltered from the wind by the hull of the vessel. She was wrecked on Lelant Sands, St Ives on 16th Oct 1886. At 204 tons, the Albert Wilhelm was built by Drossel of Zingst in 1856 and registered in Barth, Germany. The crew were rescued by the Hayle lifeboat Isis and rocket apparatus. Photographer: Edward Ashton
