I have been unable to trace any pictures of "Main". I have checked the and the Colliery web sites also shipping lists. Would anyone have any knowledge of how I would obtain/find a picture of this 750t vessle. It would be of great interest within the family tree.
I have not long ago written a book on the sinking of the SS Main, it contains the full details including photo's and names of the crew and the ship before she was sunk also photo's of the raised vessel.
