'Twas on the Thames - a wild and lonely place y'understand. A terrible disaster, with the groaning of the timbers, ay, and the screams of the doomed passengers, and -

Stop rolling your eyeballs, Fraser!

There is a fantastic model of the disaster on this site, http://www.portcities.org.uk/london/...-disaster.html

It is owned by the National Maritime Museum, and shows the boat sinking.

Or if that fails to tickle your fancy perhaps a wheel spoke from the Princess Alice http://www.portcities.org.uk/london/...ess-Alice.html

Hi All,

The trinket box reminds me very much of the wooden 'ripper' watch stand that came up for sale a few years back - this is another macabre souvenir of Victorian lives lost, and of similarly simple handmade construction. If the box is genuine, the watch stand would at least have been quite in keeping with this type of item from the LVP.

Love,

Caz

Here's a picture of a Princess Alice walking stick, not the one I saw on Antiques Roadshow though...

I was watching the Antiques Roadshow today from Glasgow and a guy dressed as a vampire turned up with a business card case made from the skin of William Burke!

He said he purchased it for 1050 in 1988 from a descendant of a Dr Hobbs, an associate of Dr Knox

It had a full provenance and has been on display in a police museum in Edinburgh

They didn't put a value on it
