A high quality print of an epic scene depicting the tragic sinking of the HMS Birkenhead.  Painted on a gable end, the mural captured the chaos of the tragedy which floundered off the coast of South Africa.  The disaster is believed to be the origin of the term, "Women and Children First".  Despite the brooding sea and sky, the painting manages to inject some colour, which lifts the mural.


The original piece is located on Gallaghers Pub on Chester Street, Birkenhead.  The original piece is around 10 metres wide and 7 metres high.


There are 4 options for this print: 

A3 Framed - £70

A3 Unframed - £30

A4 Framed - £45

A4 Unframed - £20


The print measures 16" x 12" for the A3 size and 12" x 8" for the A4 size.  The framed prints come in a simple stylish gallery-type frame complete with card mounting.


All prints are on high-quality photographic paper and have a lustre finish. 


UK postage is £1.80 or £3.75 for the unframed and £5.95 / £7.50 for the framed, collection (Liverpool City Centre) is available at no cost.


Please consider that I am a one-man band at the moment.  Whilst I try my best to keep a buffer of prints in stock, sometimes I run low and need to do a re-order.  This occasionally means there will be delays in receiving the order, but I will update you regularly if this is the case.
