Title: The Discovery convict ship at Deptford, c. 1829.

Description: This French print states that the 'Discovery' was the hulk of Captain Cook's famous ship. However, his was an earlier vessel of the same name. The 'Discovery' shown here was in fact Captain George Vancouver's ship during his voyages of exploration in the Pacific, most notably along the north-eastern coastlines of North America. She served as a prison hulk for only six years at Deptford and Woolwich from 1824 until 1830.
