Looking for S.S. Marengo photos

Hello everybody!
I'm looking for any pictures of the Wilson Line freighter Marengo (II), with a view to use them in an upcoming research article:
https://www.shipsnostalgia.com/galle...8ii-29/cat/510
Tried to get in touch with Mr. Stuart Smith who owns the original photograph, but he seemingly is no longer here (last logged in on 28th May)...
Could anyone help me somehow, please?

Thanks backsplice! But unfortunately it's not the Marengo I need. In your pictures, it's a later vessel.

What I'm looking for is exactly the Marengo (II) launched in 1910.

Why not try the Hull Maritime Museum - part of Hull Museums - seeing
that Hull was the home port for the Wilson line. They have a wealth of artefacts and documents and may be able to point you in the right direction. Please note that the museum is presently closed to the public because they are undergoing a large refit but the staff is still in place. The general enquiries contact details are below.

Hull Maritime Museum
Queen Victoria Square
Hull
HU1 3DX

General Enquiries - 01482 300 300

Good luck

Howard

Thank you Howard!
I'll try necessarily.
(I'm not in the UK, unfortunately, but I hope that they process online requests, unlike some other museums or archives.)

Eugene_N,

Have you sent him a PM via the site. This will generate an email to him to tell
him he has a message on SN.

Hawkey01, yes I did. On 29th of July, and he still haven't appeared here.
This is why I started this topic.

Dear Mr Eugene_N:

Please, see this link : http://www.tynebuiltships.co.uk/M-Sh...rengo1910.html .

I believe this is the ship you are looking for.

Dear Luiz Carlos Bitencourt: yes, it really is. Thank you!
I was in touch with the guy behind this website (http://www.tynebuiltships.co.uk/). The photo in question is actually taken from here, so he advised me to try contact Mr. Stuart Smith (who is offline for more than two months already):

Wonderful to see these pictures of the Marengo. I made several happy voyages across the Atlantic on her as R/O. The Master was David Stokes.

My last trip on the Marengo was in 1958.
