This is an original 1926 halftone print of H.M.S. Lutine leaving Yarmouth Roads, UK, on the day of its final voyage, October 9th, 1799. Originally a French magicienne-class frigate (32 guns), she had been captured by the British and rebuilt into a third-rate frigate for the Royal Navy. The day she sank, she was transporting a large cargo of gold, the majority of which has never been recovered, despite dozens of efforts over the years to do so. All but one of her 240+ crew and passengers perished with the wreck.
