Steam Ship Edina

Post by ellenjay99 » Wed Dec 01, 2010 8:23 am

I am after any information about the Edina built by Curle & Barclay 1854 in Glasgow. While I have nearly mapped out her latter years its the years 1854-1862 I have gaps for. In 1862 she was fitted out for her trip to Melbourne, Australia.
As a footnote and may be of interest to some, I located her Bell dated 1854 last week in a school north of Melbourne. When time permits I will add an image.

Her full ownership history, disposal etc. are in the Clyde-built database of Clydesite, link via
http://www.clydesite.co.uk/clydebuilt/v ... sp?id=3816
You will see that her first owners were the Leith, Hull and Hamburg S.P. Company who were engaged in North Sea services from their base in Leith.

The top one matches the database photo, lower one seems to be same ship before enclosed bridge and other modifications.
