Description:
Portrait of Captain Frank Kettle. Newspaper clipping accompanying photo reads: As a lad Frank Kettle sailed out of Cardiff in the barque Crofton Hall, eventually becoming captain and owner of three ships, all trading in wool. He sailed many seas, rounded Cape Horn six times. He sailed as second mate with Capt. Richard Woodget of the Cutty Sark, most renowned of all the old clippers. Mrs. Kettle met her husband in Bermuda, sailed the seas with him and was often lashed to the wheel to steer the ship on stormy days. The Kettles are gone now, but their personality is woven in the memories that make up the legend of Caulfeild.
