CLIPPER SHIP CITY OF ADELAIDE
Dock 2, Honey St, Port Adelaide (extension of Ocean Steamers Rd)
The world's oldest surviving composite clipper ship
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.
