HMS Warrior of 1860
When HMS Warrior was launched in 1860, she was the first ocean-going
iron-hulled battleship in the world, the largest, fastest and most
powerful of her time. For ten years she served England as a first-line
warship, until improved engine designs and newer armour-plated ships
rendered her obsolete.
After years as a depot ship and floating oil jetty she was moved to
Portsmouth historic dockyard and opened to the public as a museum ship.
There is more information on the ship in the homepage of
Historic Dockyard and the website of
Wikipedia holds a good article on
HMS Warrior, too.

We visited HMS Warrior on a cloudy day in December 2007. I took many
pictures, although this was not the best time to take photos. If you
click on a photo you will get that photo in high resolution. These
high-resolution photos show much detail, despite the poor light. (If you

The Science Museum in London has a
large model of the Warrior.
