Greenwich Reach, London

Greenwich reach, presumably mid fifties. The ship is the Begonia of North Shields. Presumably the one owned by the Stag Line, and that either lasted fom 1943 to 56, or was in Stag Line's ownership in that period. There's a Stag line thread in the Forum.

The "Begonia" was the former Stephens, Sutton tramp "Reaveley" which had been built for Norwegian owners in 1929.
During the ice free season of 1956 Begonia, Camellia, Gardenia and Clintonia each made two voyages to Churchill in Hudson Bay, Canada and lifted out a total of 59,112 of grain.
