City of New York

Some time ago I inherited a pencil drawing of mv City of New York, by "PSP (?) Morter".

It is A4 in size and seen in landscape view. It shows the ship as seen from sea level on the port-quarter, with the ship steaming away, rolling gently. It is dramatic in its artistic simplicity.

I inherited it from the sister of the late Captain AHG Jones, who was once master of the ship.

I seem to recall seeing drawings by Morter of other Ellerman ships and wonder if anybody might be able to enlarge upon Morter himself? Was he an Ellerman man? Does anybody know? All information gratefully appreciated.
