Remains of the French three-masted barque Seine at Perranporth, Cornwall. 1901

Close up of the smashed hull of the French three-masted steel barque Seine driven ashore at Perranporth in December 1900. The photograph was probably taken early in 1901. At 2185 tons gross, the Seine was built in 1889 by La Porte in Rouen and owned by A.D. Bordes et Fils of Bordeaux. Eighty one days out of Iquique and bound for Falmouth carrying nitrates, she was driven ashore at Perranporth on 27th December 1900. Her master was Captain Guimper. All crew members were rescued by the combined efforts of the St Agnes and Perranporth rocket brigades. The photographs shows a large number of onlookers and a horse-drawn cart salvaging timber. Photographer: John Charles Burrow
