The English Fleet at Cherbourg

The English Fleet at Cherbourg, originally uploaded by The British Monarchy.  5 August 1858, by Gustave le Gray. (The Royal Collection © 2010, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II)

UPON CLOSER EXAMINATION: Despite the title given in HM Flickr photostream, a more appropriate title may be “The British and French fleets at Cherbourg”. Since the leftmost ship-of-the-line is quite clearly flying the French tricolour from her main topgallant mast.
