“Figurehead, ANNE LISLE” SA Maritime Museum 3D Model
The barque Annie Lisle was built in 1865 at Quebec, Canada by Labbie for Anderson & Co. This vessel with a gross tonnage of 347 tons, entered Australian waters in the early 1870s. By 1876, Annie Lisle was trading out of Port Adelaide under Captain William Hayes who was part owner. For the next decade, the vessel was a regular trader to Western Australia shipping flour and general cargo to the west and importing valuable jarrah timber to South Australia. On 20 May 1887, Annie Lisle was run down and badly damaged by the S.S. Australind at Gage Roads, near Fremantle Harbour, Western Australia. Annie Lisle was subsequently converted to a general purpose hulk and used on the Western Australian coast.
The figurehead was discovered installed on the front lawn of Miss L.M. Jacka at Henley Beach, holding a bouquet of flowers. She remained there for many years before being ‘loaned’ ( it seems on a permanent basis) to the Port Adelaide Nautical Museum on 23/6/1936.
