Description:

Rare engraving of the wrecking of the brig, Victor, at Newcastle. On the 16th April, the brig Victor, of and for Melbourne from Newcastle, with coal, was becalmed off Newcastle, and slowly drifted ashore until the captain, not liking the vessel’s position, attempted, unsuccessfully, to wear her, and immediately afterwards she bumped heavily. The steam tug Prince Alfred went to her assistance and got her in tow, but unfortunately the line broke, and a heavy sea catching her, she went bodily on the rocks, about three quarters of a mile from Nobbys.

From the original edition of the Illustrated Sydney News.
