$150.00Wilson--G-W-H-M-S--ImpregnableAttractively framed by branches, this stereoview of the British second-rate ship of the line H.M.S. Impregnable from 1857 was created by Scottish photographer G.W. Wilson. All three gun decks are clearly visible as the ship sits at anchor in Hamoaze, near Plymouth, England. The Impregnable, a close copy of Nelson's "Victory" was launched in 1811 and later refitted as a guard-ship. She saw action in the bombardment of Algiers in 1816. From 1862 to 1886 the Impregnable was used as a training ship for British naval cadets.<BR> </BR> With two cancelled U.S. revenue stamps on the verso. Number 313.
