In 1988 the World Ship Trust awarded their seventh maritime heritage award to Polly Woodside, for “supreme achievement in the preservation of maritime heritage” — a first for a restored merchant ship. In March 2007, Polly Woodside was added to the Victorian Heritage Register. Polly Woodside was built at the north shipbuilding yard of Workman, Clark and Co, Queen’s Island, Belfast during 1885, for William J. Woodside and Co. She was launched on 7 November 1885; the christening performed by the owner’s wife, Mrs Marian (“Polly”) Woodside, after whom the ship was named. Polly Woodside operated as a cargo vessel carrying coal, nitrate, and wheat between British ports and the ports of South America, such as Montevideo, Valparaiso and Buenos Aires. In sixteen voyages between December 1885 and August 1903 she made a number of arduous passages around Cape Horn. The Polly Woodside’s operating crew, including Master and Mate was generally less than 20. (Wikipedia)
