The 27th of May History Calendar

A Sloop

On this day 131 years ago in 1893 the Stather built sloop returned to Hull from an unusually long voyage for a so called Humber sloop. She left Hull on the 29th of April, first taking oilcake to Yamouth, there picked up flour for London, then took barley to Ipswich, before heading for home.
