Can you help?

Looking for information on the SS 'Sound Fisher' of Barrow O.N. 99940; tonnage 131. My G G Grandfather sailed on this vessel and according to 1901 Census the 'Sound Fisher' was moored at Weston Point.

Any details or pictures of the 'Sound Fisher' and Weston Point docks would be appreciated.

Chris

Sound Fisher was built in 1894 and was renamed Causeway in 1920

The only Causeway for that era is the Sound Fisher
So this should be a picture of her as the Causeway
