Ahoy John Martin,

Sorry, but I cann't,I'm looking for them also for quite a time, and some more!!!But,the most wanted, you have to pay for, and that's against my principles, after all they are copy's from other postcards or photos, and mostly scanned.I know people on the i-net, that pay you for "wanted pictures", and then later on they sell them on a Cd-r; yes we should have shoot some photos in the '50's-'60's, instead hanging around in those nice little bars, with all that nice folks in there.(Pint)
and be rich by now!

Nice shots of the wreck! Any idean when they were taken? She seems to be hard aground, is there any information on what happened to the wreck, refloated and scrapped, scrapped on the spot, abandoned to nature?

Ahoy Aristo,

For the moment, I dont have any idea, but will ask my South American friends, and hope to give soon the answers.

John,
Just a thought - did you try looking for her under her original name? In case you were not aware, she was built in 1942 and launched as "Empire Canyon"

Good luck with your search

Sorry to be slow on this one - Beacon Grange was carrying coal to the Patagonian Packing Stations at Rio Gallegos and went aground 06-09-1921 and was declared a CTL and left there to the mercy of seas and broke up.
