Dear all

I uploaded this postacard "ERA" without any comment. We are at Port La Nouvelle in France, mediterranean coast, after 1927.
Translation from french:
"Beach work, dredger unloading on every trip 525 tons of sand on the beach. Ship can approximately load at sea her sand cargo in one hour, and unload it (pump it) in half an hour".
"S" should not be "Schiaffino". An idea should be LA LOIRE, based at Oran, Algeria.
Great thanks by advance for ideas.

She is danish. The funnelmark is from the Danish company SKANDINAVISK SANDSUGER KOMAPAGNI in
Copenhagen and I think the must be SUOMI.

Dear Hald
Thanks you very much for your answer. Yes it's possible, dredger has been modified in 1944. I compared with 2 pictures of SUOMI found on Internet.
It's strange (but not impossible) to see a danish dredger working in a french mediterranean coastal resort, to built artificial beaches.
Kind regards.
Erwan
