This month’s mystery ship is a mystery scene as well. Details of the ships pictured are sought, as well as the location of the photograph, which is not known. The small cargo vessel alongside is named Crania, so can you help with further details of her? Which company was she operated by? When and where was she built? On what routes did she operate, and what was her fate? Can you also identify the tug towing the ship from which the photo was taken? Or, better still, the ship itself, or even the small container ship just visible further up the quay?
