  • Item
  • 1953

This is the script of the radio play "She Never was a Lady" about the sailing ship "Marco Polo". The "Marco Polo" was constructed in Saint John, New Brunswick, by James Smith. It was purchased by James Barnes of Black Ball Line of Australian packets. On its first run to Australia in 1852, Captain James Forbes boasted that he would have the ship back on the Mersey within 6 months, which was an unheard of feat in those days. Captain Forbes arrived back in Liverpool in 5 months and 21 days. Over the years, the "Marco Polo" routinely kept very fast times. The ship was lost in 1883 and off Cavendish, Prince Edward Island.
