This print is black-lined presumably in memory of the great loss of life. A report from the Liverpool Mercury on Friday the 11th of January stated that the Sunday past had seen strong gusts of wind, but many vessels went to sea as there was nothing to indicate that a huge storm was about to follow the winds…...The losses recorded at sea were damaging. Many ships were battered and wrecked at sea, as well as in the coastal ports. Many ships that were lost and damaged are named in the narrative, as well as giving lists for some of the seamen who were lost or rescued the day after the hurricane. All areas of the country suffered looses at sea, as well as casualties and fatalities in the ports.
