So many I couldnt fit them all in. All a bit too cluttered if you ask me. Some hiding behind others. They would look so much better spread out ;and it wasnt like there wasnt much room to do so in the space all around the Cutty Sark!!
Next three images are from the Mersea Island Museum in Essex.
Not sure where this one is?
I dont know where the next 3 are either?
