Advert Description

Oxfam Bookshop Newport

4 1970s photo prints by Beken, the celebrated Cowes firm (see image 5 for details of their history).

The yacht in the main image is Great Britain II, which held the record for round-the-world cruising time, captained by Chay Blyth. The other 3 yachts - Starchaser, Pied Piper and Gap II - were all famous racing yachts.

Please also note the paragraph in the Beken page concerning the fact that these reprductions are not colour fast; thus although an ideal framing project, they should not be exposed to the light. They are not as valuable as the earlier and/or signed photos, hence low overall price for this item. As in the final paragraph, copyright remains with Beken and Co.
