Street View of the Mary Celeste
Google in partnership with the Catlin Sea Survey has today added undersea Street View imagery of the wreck of the paddle steamer the 'Mary Celeste' to Google Maps.
I've done a little research this evening trying to put together the story of this ship wreck - and it is quite an interesting story. The Mary Celeste was a blockade runner used during the American Civil War on behalf of the Confederacy to smuggle goods in and out of America.
If you want to know more then check out this little biography of the Mary Celeste that I've put together with the help of jQuery Waypoints and the Google Maps API.
