For something entirely different from the photo archives…


Taken in 1909 at the Hudson-Fulton Celebration in New York City: H.M.S. Inflexible. She was just about two years old at the time and was serving as the temporary flagship of the Admiral of the Fleet, Sir Edward Hobart Seymour. An Invincible class battle-cruiser, she served throughout World War I, participating in action in both the Mediterranean and North Atlantic campaigns, including Dardanelles and Jutland. She was scrapped in 1921.

The photograph was probably taken by George Creevey from his motor yacht, Mavourneen.
