Reardon Smiths of Cardiff had five ships in all, that they named Eastern City. The first was back in about 1913. In 1948, you would be talking about number three, built in 1941.

LLanberis

Ruud I can't thank you enough, this was my first deep sea vessel, She was a very unhappy ship and a very bad feeder, but this is what nostalgia is all about , I have never been able to get a pic of her although I believe there is one in a Cardiff Museum, once again thanks. Tell.

I have a good sized photo of her scanned from the "Travels of the Tramps" series. I can't post it because of copywright but if you give me your email address I can email it to you.
