Good Evening All.
I’ll finish off with a GENUINE UNIDENTIFIED POSTCARD but which is really a TALKING POINT as I don’t think the ship could possibly be identified.
It's a part of the ship's steering.
You're right about being unable to identify the ship.
jock1e - I think you mean Marie Celeste!
The wheel on the right looks damaged, and there are two further hubs on the shaft.
Judging by the clips on the door then it is an entrance to a watertight compartment. Similar clips were used on RN ships until quite recently.
It is damaged. I guess that there would have been 3 ship's wheels in place. But I think that this is the emergency steering position and the chain may have led to the main steering position.
Woolwell I am of the same opinion as I'm pretty sure when I did basic training on T.S. Vindicatrix (an old sailing hulk) there was a similar arrangement which was used to teach the Deck trainees.
I'm turning in, G'Night All.
The rope running up the centre of the ladder used to be fairly common when the side handrails were not in place. There is gearing after the vertical tube which I think may be the base of a mast.
I think that it is a badly stowed hammock on the desk.
A moustached man on a ship is a rarity.

It's not a match but gives an indication of what the steering gear may have looked like with all 3 wheels in place.
