The Wreck of The Amis Reunis
A closer view of the wreck of the Amis Reunis from the 1934 postcard - it looks to be in the same place, and lying at the same angle, as the mystery wreck found this month.
Thanks to Gareth Hughes and the Portmeiron Facebook.
A wooden wreck emerged in the estuary earlier this month, supposed to be that of the Amis Reunis, but it could be that of the wreck of a slate barge from Blaenau Ffestiniog. I wonder how old it is?
This photo is from the spa at Portmeirion.
So the question is, is this the wreck of the Amis Reunis, or that of an old slate barge? I hope steps are taken by the management at Portmeirion to discover the age, and possible identity of the wreck.
