Sinking of the Vasa

Active selection:    
Sinking of the Vasa.  Original artwork for Look and Learn to depict the terrible disaster of the Vasa, pride of the Swedish navy in 1628. On her maiden voyage she was she was put to sea in Stockholm harbour with a large amount of ballast, her gun ports open and a huge number of dignatories on board. A surprise gust of wind took her sails and turned her over, the sea rushing through her gun ports. Lent for scanning by the Illustration Art Gallery.
