A photo-processed reproduction print depicting the starboard-broadside view of the steamship 'City of London' off Ballycotton Island in Ireland. The lighthouse situated on the steep slope of the island is visible on the far right side of the print. The steamship is notable for carrying immigrants from Liverpool to New York in 1871-1872. The matte obscures the descriptive title on the bottom margin of the print.
