THROUGH THEIR EYES
ROYAL NAVY SAILORS PHOTO ALBUM .SERVED ON HMS TOPAZE & HMS ADVENTURE CIRCA 1901 - 1908 .
Here I offer a DVD containing 52 high resolution scans ( 1200 dpi ) produced from an original photo album . Many of the original photos are large , you will be able to zoom in on fine details .The album belonged to a sailor who served on HMS Adventure and HMS Topaze . The album seems to cover a period 1901-1908 . There are approx 10 photos showing the above ships and around a further 12 photos showing crew and officers aboard ....( majority of photos relate to HMS Topaze ) .
I believe the original owner was a Petty officer , one man is featured in around 6 photos , I assume it was his album ..... ( I would love to know his name if anyone can positively identify his rank and pin him down on a crew list for HMS Topaze ) .
There are some excellent quality images of crew, officers and ships ....other photos include some images taken in South Africa in 1901 ...soldiers in uniform , 2 photos of partially submerged sail ship wreck with men aboard 1901 .
There are photos of Royal Yacht Victoria and German Royal yacht SMY Hohenzollern II. plus a photo of HMS Dreadnought .These photos are now over 100 years old and offer a fascinating view into this man's service . I'm sure this will appeal to anyone with an interest in naval history .
