There isn't one on the Industrial Sunderland Crown's Shipyard page.
I do however have a printed photo which I must have got online at some stage. I suspect it came from Riversea. Try emailing George at: shipshull@shipshull.karoo.co.uk

Alternatively go to this page on Ships nostalgia: http://www.shipsnostalgia.com/member.php?u=14881
and send Riversea a private message.

If all else fails get back to me and I'll scan my photo for you. It won't be of the greatest quality but better than nothing.

Hi Philray,

There is a picture of the Lambeth HERE (http://www.photoship.co.uk/JAlbum%20Ships/Old%20Ships%20L/slides/Lambeth-01.html) which was renamed Dashwood for Fenwicks, scrapped 1961.

Dashwood was built by Crown's in 1946 and laid down as Empire Lambeth. You've got the SEGB flatiron by mistake.

Hi Phil,

At risk of being shot at again, how about this one ? HERE (http://www.benjidog.co.uk/allen/photos/FRAFEN06.jpg)

By the kindness of Bengidog and the Allen Collection.

Kind regards

Chris

At risk of being shot at again ...

No way. It's better than my printed one. Thanks.

Cheers, Miramar (with apologies to Rodger Haworth)
