Ship Research

I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions about where I might be able to obtain photos of ships up to WWII.

I have a collection of all ships to visit the Port of Napier since 1895 and only have 23 that I am missing. Of those I may have found 5, but my sources have dried up.

Some of them are US freighters while the balance are largely British tramps. Any suggestions would be gratefully received.

Regards

Tony d

p.s. I have posted a list of outstanding ships previously and had some useful feedback, but now I may have to loook further afield.

Hi Tony,

I have just joined so did not see your earlier post.

Can you reissue your list of missing ships?

Thanks for the info Gdynia. It filled some gaps in my records.

I don't suppose you would know where I might get photos of those ships.

photoship.co.uk have photos of the JURA. it looks about the right age but as photos are rarely shown with their official numbers it can be a bit tricky sometimes to know if you have the right ship.

good luck

Thanks for the suggestions.

Unfortunately I think the Harmatris was a later vessel and the Jura was a Swiss owned vessel which was not the one I was after.

I appreciate the advice and I'm grateful for any assistance.

Regards

Tony

I thought I'd resubmit this request as my list gets smaller.

I managed to obtain a photo of the Anerley taken in Caspar, California which someone found for me at the Museum in Mendecino. It's quite amazing where photos turn up.

HI FROM STORES , THE HARMATRIS IS A LATER ONE, THE SWISS SHIP IS TOO SMALL ANYWAY. I HAVE A PHOTO OF SS ANERLEY OF WATTS WATTS DATED 1881, BUT WRONG ONE.

I've managed to find one more - the Elmville taken in Timaru. It was a panoramic view of the port with the Elmville alongside and I managed to get a good zoom of the ship itself from the South Canterbury Museum

I have also learnt that there is a photo of the Harmatris taken in Timaru in existence and was auctioned off in Tradee in 2007. I don't suppose anyone has come across it.

Found one picture of SKRAMSTAD. Flag: No.
Do you happen to have a picture of VARANGFJELL? We used to discharge phosphate at Napier in 65/66.
Regards,
Knut.

There are three in the SN galllery if you do a search but they may not be the one you're looking for.
