Michael,

the tug is German and so is the flag on the tall ship. I don't know much about sailing ships other than that they are a great sight to see. Love the photograph.

greetings
Ton

Thank you Ton . That figures as I was on the London Hamburg run back in 1952 and if not it could have been on a trip to Bremerhaven where we often went to.

Hello,
My money : sv Passat , one of the German Flying P-Liners; launched in 1911 at the Blohm & Voss shipyard – Hamburg.
In 1950 the German ship-owner Heinz Schliewen (and later a consortium) bought Passat and Pamir (often erroneously referred to as sister ships) for conversion to freight, carrying school ships. For the next years both ships continued to sail between Europe and the east coast of South America, primarily to Argentina, but not around Cape Horn.
In 1957, a few weeks after the tragic loss of Pamir in mid-Atlantic sv Passat was decommissioned after having almost experienced the same fate as the Pamir when her loose barley cargo shifted during a storm.
She’s now a youth hostel, museum ship, and landmark moored at Travemünde, a borough of Lübeck (Schleswig-Holstein).
Regards.

Hi Freddy,
How interesting I had heard of the Passat and Pamir and recall hearing of the fate of the Pamir but it still could have been either ship as I took the photo back in 1952. I must try to find the negative as I could blow up the picture and this might improve the detail. I'm glad it has been of interest to some.

Hi Michael … and other friends,
O.K. in the early 1950s the 2 windjammers were under the German flag.
But in case my hypothesis should be correct --sv Passat versus sv Pamir-- it would undoubtedly be the Passat, because for example, the Pamir’s portholes around the poop, are not arranged in the same design/way as the ones of sv Passat..
Best regards,
Freddy.

Hello Tugfan, you can have right, it is tug from "Schuchmann - Bugsier" tug, because "Unterweser Reederei" has "URAG" in the funnel.
