I am trying to find any photograph of the ex Union Liner Susquehanna.
I know the basic facts about her:
Ex- Mount Sephar, 1898 purchased from Smith & Service, Glasgow, renamed Susquehanna, 1900 transferred to Union-Castle Mail SS Co, 1921 sold to Denaby Shipping Co, Southampton, renamed London City.

But would love to find a picture, can anyone help?
