A ship’s portrait of the ‘William Fisher’ shown in broadside view under sail. She was built in Liverpool in 1844 and is shown sailing off the coast. Several sailing ships can be seen at anchor on the far left and a paddle steamer with billowing smoke is shown steaming ahead of her. The ‘William Fisher’ has a distinct masthead of a full size male figure, probably William Fisher, pointing the way forward.
