I think it is a great photograph of a typical Triple Expansion Tramp design just steaming around the Oceans of the World and brings back memories for those of us who have sailed on this type of vessel. Weirs Pumps I would guess making that unmistakable sound indicating that all was well with the little world we sailed on.(Thumb)

Loch Ranza, would that indicate she was a British Flag Vessel ? if so what Company owned or Managed her ?

I also just noticed the white cliffs in the Back ground, so she is heading up the Channel, aft Dereks rigged so could be bound for Antwerp or Rotterdam,

Hi Old Janner,
I think you have turned off the option "PHOTO DETAILS" as I told you before to read the caption of a photo and you replied "What caption?".
Just underneath of each posted image you find the writing "Photo Details". Go to the right of this writing and click on that little stripe there. Then you will see the caption of the photo.
Rgds, Manfred
