Can anyone identify the classic cargo ship pictured here? The photo was sent in by Kenneth Conway, who said: ‘I came across this picture when sorting through my father’s affairs. He was an apprentice navigating officer at the time (1931-33), and the ship was carrying apples from Tasmania to Hamburg.’ But can anybody say which ship is pictured? By whom was she operated and when was she built? And where was the photo taken?
