My guess: one of the 3 sisters-ships built by Cockerill : Ville de Douvres 1887-1911, La Flandre 1888-1911, sunk as blockship at Ostend in1918 by Germans, but probably Prince Albert (1) 1887-1911.

Agree with Freddy01. Post 1889 after the first two had been rebuilt and given horizontal topped funnels.

Hi, it is the 'Prince Albert' in 1887; at the beginning the 'Prince Albert' has a lifeboat in the front of the ship, and after a bit of bad weather, they moved it to the back.

So one can see on the twoo other ships from the same class the 'Ville de Douvres" and the "la Flandre" not more lifeboats in the front.
rgds,
Arne

Hi,
i think this photo was taken as she come for the firts time in Ostend spring 1887. Flags on top; no passengers but a lot of persons on the bridge.
The following year she was sent back to the shipyard in Hoboken, where she be lengthened by 15 ft. and re-engined and reboilered.
Then capable for 19 knots instat of 17.5
rgds,
Arne

Hi Arne, Greenway ("Century of Cross Channel Passenger Ferries") claims she had 'tall bell mouthed funnels' when she first came out?

Hi,
built by Cockerill the 'PA' 'Ville' and 'La Fl' have tall funnels with horizontal tops, a favourite touch from the Antwerp schipyard.
Rgds,
Arne
