Can anyone please identify which of the two this vessel is? 1900 or 1912? If the colours are those of Squance prior to becoming Common Bros., then 1900 for sure.

re your query on Daghestan. I believe that it is Daghestan (2) 1912-1916 My reference is the book ,The Trades Increase' which is the history of Norex which incorporates The Hindustan Steam Shipping Co. managed by Common Bros. A very good read etc. kind regards Bill Smith
