Two ships driving ashore

In the centre, a starboard bow view of a ship lifting to a sea. Her fore and main yards are aportlast; the topmasts are still up and the topsail yards crossed. A boat is pulling close on her port bow. On the left, the fore part of a ship, starboard side, showing only her bowsprit and fore lowermast. There is a ship at anchor in the right distance.

This is a pencil drawing by the Younger, signed in brown ink with part of the signature ‘W.V.VJ.’
