An early landmark of the new Penn's Landing is the beautiful sailing vessel - the Moshulu. This 4-masted ship is the only example of this type of ship that is still afloat. Since her launching in 1904, the Moshulu has had a long and exciting career on the high seas working the ports of Europe, South America, Australia, America and Africa. She was confiscated by the Americans in one war and by the Germans in the next. She has traveled around Cape Horn 54 times. She has hauled coal and coke, copper ore and nitrate, lumber and grain. In lesser days, she had served as a floating warehouse. In grander days, she won the last great grain race in 1939. Following this distinguished career, the Moshulu was purchased in 1968 and sent to Naantale, Finland for restoration. From there she eventually was moved to Philadelphia in the mid-1970's and became the cornerstone of Philadelphia's latest family and tourism mecca called Penn's Landing. She sustained a near tragic fire in late 1989 however there was no stopping this elegant lady. Although her sailing days seem to be behind her, the Moshulu is now an extravagant restaurant that caters to an upscale clientele. Her specialties are of a South Pacific flair and her entries have been praised by many of the area's food critic. The accompanying pictures were taken of this wonderful vessel this morning!
