Euterpe
This was shot in the hold of the ship "Star of India," a restored windjammer, refurbished in 1963 and still fully seaworthy, displayed now at the Maritime Museum at the San Diego harbor. The ship was built in 1863 and was then named the "Euterpe" for the muse of music.

Oh...and since my husband is a Welshman, I couldn't help noticing the ULTRA Welsh name of the composer...Thluwellan (phonetic) Owen!

They don't get much Welsher than that!

And you have to almost spit to pronounce the double Ls.
