Lot Essay

The long-lived wooden snow/brig Quay Side was built at Sunderland in 1832 for Hall & Co. of Newcastle. After twenty years in Lloyd's Registers, where she appears continually as a Baltic trader, she disappears from record for about ten years before reappearing under a new owner, R. Blumer, around 1860. Subsequently - though after this painting was executed in 1876 - re-rigged as a brig, she passed into the ownership of Craven's of Whitby (Captain Hardcastle) and foundered in a force 7 gale off the approaches to the Humber estuary on 12th January 1886.
