The Edith Eleanor: produced as a combined lithograph and linocut with hand colouring, this print depicts the last boat to have ever been built in Aberystwyth in 1881 – the 81 foot long three masted schooner The Edith Eleanor. Captained by William Thomas Jones, this ship travelled as far south to the Mediterranean and as far west as the coast of Labrador – trading Welsh slate and timber for fish and salt. The ship finally met its end in the Bristol Channel in 1921.
