The County of Peebles begins her passage in fine weather with a few hands aloft losing sail. This handsome iron ship was the first of her kind, ordered by the Scottish shipowners R & J Craig for their Indian trade, built in Glasgow by Barclay, Curle & Co. and launched in 1875. She was the world's first iron four-masted full-rigged ship, and the experimental design proved so successful that the Craigs ordered eleven more four-masters, each named, like the rest of the fleet, for a Scottish county. Remarkably, the County of Peebles still survives as a breakwater in Punta Arenas, on the far-off Straits of Magellan.
