One above looks like Ben Kingsley.. Perhaps it was a grain race ship? Looks cold though.

Wee bit before Ben Kingsleys' time I think. :) Pre WW1 South Atlantic.It's the yoke on the tripod I was wondering what's it 's purpose? Some kind of camera? Though I thought it was a bit early for that ?
I was also running the idea around in my head that it was on a whaler

Look like US Navy style pea coats and caps? The camera is similar to this WW1 version..
