strathspey & reel
The Great Eastern

The Glasgow Reel
This set is part of the following collections:


The S S Great Eastern was launched in 1858 and was originally called The Leviathan because of its size. In 1860 she made the first of several trips to New York, but she never paid her way, so she was broken up in 1889. This strathspey and reel set was first published in Edinburgh in the 1880s, in Kohler's Violin Repository.
