A schooner and brig aground near Swansea

A paper calotype negative. A port bow view of a schooner dried out with a brig aground off its starboard broadside. The brig has its fore and main topsails set, hanging limply, probably drying. Its lower yard foresail has been clewed up untidily. An over exposed image that means the hulls very dark.

The bottom right corner on the back has '43.' in ink.
