Hi Folks: Curiosity. Could anyone point me to resources (or give me the benefit of personal knowledge) where I could trace a Dutch coaster, La Paloma, which was a regular visitor to the north east of England in 1957 or so. The photos on Johannes's site are obviously not the correct La Paloma.

Hello, There were 4 Dutch coasters named LA PALOMA but I think that you mean this one...
LA PALOMA 1936/200gt. builders: Scheepswerf Gideon, J. Koster Hzn., Groningen, as BRINDA
1955: TONNY
1956: LA PALOMA
1982: PALOMA I
1987: PALOMA
1988: LA PALOMA
In 1988 she was laid up in Georgetown. In 1999 out of registration, existence in doubt...
Regards, Leo Johannes

Thanks for that Leo. The La Paloma I'm looking for was definitely named La Paloma in 1957. SEE: http://www.shipsnostalgia.com/showthread.php?t=2688&highlight=sunderland+shipping+news+1957

The LA PALOMA for which Leo has provided some career details is undoubtedly the vessel in which you are interested. This vessel was an occasional visitor to the port of London during the later 1950s and certainly the earlier 1960s. I have a note that I have somewhere a photograph of it, taken on the Thames in 1959. Cannot trace it yet, but when it does emerge I shall post it.
Regards
Roger
