The Preussen DAR_P01
The German schooner The Preussen, run aground in St Margaret's Bay, Kent. The Preussen was the largest sailing vessel in the world at the time of her loss in November 1910. She collided with the SS Brighton on the morning of 06 November 1910. She managed to anchor off Dungeness, but the cables parted and she was driven out to sea. Tugs then towed her towards Dover, but she ran ashore off St Margaret's Bay. Between 04-11 January 1911 gales caused her to break in two. Photographed in November 1910 by Annette Evelyn Darwall
