GALLERY "STL": SHAMROCK II

Photos of Shamrock II, challenger of the America's Cup in 1901Gallery "Sir Thomas Lipton"

Sir Thomas Lipton bequeathed his collection of photographs, newspaper cuttings and memorabilia to the Mitchell Library where it is still housed. In 1999, the collection was showing signs of degradation and conservation was required. Unilever, who now own the Lipton brand, were approached and funded the conservation and digitisation costs.

Each thumbnail presented here contains a link to the original photo on the Mitchell Library' s website.
