Production date

Copy negative of a sailing ship at sea. The ship is the 'Selma'.
The captain was Johan Adolph Bach (born 17 Sept. 1834 in Norway). They sailed from England and were presumed wrecked somewhere off coast of America in 1893 and lost with all hands. The original oil painting of the 'Selma' was inherited by Lily Andrews (nee Bach). She had five photos taken of the Selma and had the original oil painting returned to England.
