Exclamation SS Theodora - Taurus - Consuelo - Athena 1887-1927


I'm looking for pictures of a yacht built in 1887 by Gourlay Brothers & Co (Dundee) Ltd.

She belonged to Morton J.T. under the name SS Theodora from 1887-1898, then to Handrews Hugh as SS Taurus from 1898 - 1900, then to the Earl of Crawford as SS Consuelo from 1900 - 1907 and ultimately to Towle R.E. who used her as a cargoship from 1907 to 1927.

She sank in 1927 (18th of may) in the Mediterranean, nearby Narbonne. Today she lies at 11 meters and is a great diving spot

Many thanks in advance.
