I cannot see any thistle that matches this,the nearest being a Marsh Thistle, so over to the experts for confirmation. It was at least 7' tall, thin stemmed with fine spines projecting at right angles all the way up the stem. Flowers were in terminal clusters but only one flower seemed to be open at a time. Long, narrow leaves with spines. (sorry for poor shots of flowers)
