Found this redirected 5-6 times from a facebook site.

Note the rigging.  The shrouds are likely wire rope, but note how stiff they are set up (mind, that's to steel masts, the P-liners only had wodd t'gallants, IIRC).

The "all canvas fltying" photos are fascinating, too--note how far around the yards are cranked over, and that the angle increases the further up the mast the yards are.
