Norwegian ship "Tautra" (1) Nova Scotia

Here is the “Tautra” a Norwegian cargo ship moored at one of the ports on the lower Avon River in Nova Scotia, Canada, the tidal variations during the spring tides are enormous as you can see when you compare the two photos Tautra (1) and Tautra (2).
The photos are from the 1930’s
