City in question

Hi everyone, I am looking for information on the final fate of the following Ellerman ships:
City of Brooklyn Sold 1967 as Lefkadios
City of Liverpool Sold 1967 as Kavo Grossos
City of Izmir (ex-Flaminian) Sold 1975 as Climax Pearl

Any clues?

A starter for you then.

City of Izmir sold 1975 and became Climax Pearl and later became Maldive Pearl she finished her years under the flag of the Maldive Islands, being demolished at Gadani Beach in 1984.
