Captain David Bruce had the City of Adelaide built and was its first master in 1864. On 17 July 2017 his great grand-daughter Pam Whittle celebrated her 90th birthday aboard the ship, with son & daughters, Bruce, Julia and Meredith, plus family and friends.

 

To mark the occasion Pam made a very significant donation, which will now enable the Captain's Quarters to be restored. These cabins will be at the very stern of the saloon deck which is currently undergoing restoration.

 

A great mix of family & historical links.

 

Thank you Pam and happy birthday.
