PRINCESS ALICE

DESCRIPTION + /

1878 wreck of English paddle steamer which foundered following a collision in Barking Reach while bound from Gravesend for London on an excursion, with severe loss of life. She was constructed of iron in 1865, having originally served as a passenger steamer in Glasgow. Contemporary newspapers describe preparations to lift the vessel: from this, and from her position in the River Thames, as a hazard to navigation, it is likely that the vessel was recovered. Court records have suggested she was salvaged from the River Thames.
