Photograph of the Canadian government steamboat ADMIRAL in Gaspé Bay. A series of flags can be seen both forward and aft. Sailors can be seen in both sets of rigging. A brigantine lies against the quay.
ADMIRAL was built in 1842 at the Niagara Harbour and Dock Company and operated on Lake Ontario, and rebuilt after a fire in 1853. In the late 1850s she was taken down the Saint Lawrence and worked under contract to the Quebec Trinity House towing and delivering pilots. She was sold off and later rebuilt as a schooner.
