Turbinia - Closeup

  • Description

    A close view of the damage which 'Turbinia' sustained in 1907. She was moored at Wallsend when a ship launched from Stephenson's shipyard crashed into her. The picture shows where the bow of the other ship hit 'Turbinia's side. There was extensive damage to the hull, the guardrails were bent and part of the wheelhouse was destroyed. There was no great damage to her engines, though, and she was fully restored in the same year.
