Smile North City - W.Ryper

Hello all!

I am looking for some information and a photo of the drifter "North City" built 1901 by J.Duthie,Sons & Co.,Aberdeen.
Owned by North Line Steam Fishing Co. Ltd.,Aberdeen, 1901 - 1913.
I wonder if anybody could give me her fishing/port number? A photo would also be great.

Sold 1913 to Swedish owners and renamed "Svea". Norwegian from 1915 and renamed "Storhaug". In use as fishing vessel and later on as a freighter in the coastal trades.
The vessel existed until 1988 when she was rigged down to a barge.

Best regards
Terje Nilsen
