Thumbs up City Boats

Hi Jam Butty
Welcome to the site. Sorry cannot help you directly but here are a couple of leads for you. Check out these web sites
www.red-duster.co.uk/PRINCE
www.hhpl.on.cu/GreatLakes/Dcouments/Scanner
Both above relate to City of Eastbourne after she had become City of Toronto - one phone and some interseting reading
Also there is a picture of the City of Eastbourne as the City of Toronto in the Gallery in this Ships Nostalgia site. It is in "Fairfield" gallery.
For another contact try www.theshipslist.com/ships/lines/ellerman.
If all else fails simple type "Ellerman City Lines ship photo City of Eastbourne (or City of Hereford) into your search engine. There are postcards of these to listed in E Bay.
I did two Far East trips on the Eastbournes sister City of Glasgow - great ship/great times.

Good hunting - lets know how you go.
