Interesting photo of a special ship, the PHEAX.
Originally she was a standard tanker T2, the SEDAN, built at Hoboken in 1943.Her funnel is tipical.
Renamed: 1947 GRAVENCHON, 1947 ESSO FRANCE, 1954 ESSO FLANDRE. In 1960, with the insertion of a new midship section, converted to a bulk carrier in Belgium and renamed PHEAX.
In 1977 renamed AL KHAZAN and in 1978 CHIOS FLAG. Broken up in the same year.

The other one had a shorter life:
Oil tanker, 12057 gt, built in Port Glasgow in 1952 as the LARISTAN.
1963 remaned ALOR STAR, 1966 THASSOS ISLAND, 1970 MENTOR, 1971 MAREAN. Disappears from Register in 1973.

Well, as I said, the PHEAX funnel was unmistakably a T2 funnel.
Starting from that point it was not difficult, by browsing "Victory Ships and Tankers" of Sawyer and Mitchell.

Delighted to have been of help!

A good web site for T2 tankers is:
http://www.geocities.com/CapeCanaver...tanker-nf.html
This site lists ship under builders giving there histories.
