This photograph was taken in Aden aboard the
s.s.ELPENOR (ex. GLENFINLAS) in 1949.
Coaling has just been completed, or another barge is about to be brought alongside. Had a photograph been attempted whilst work was going on it would have been spoilt on account of the cloud of coal dust hanging in the air.
About a thousand tons of the stuff would have been humped up the stages, (2 men on each stage both sides of the ship) in baskets holding approx.
50 lbs and dumped into the side pocket & cross bunker hatches. Eight to ten hours to complete.
