City of Manchester from an Ellerman postcard, photographer unknown. May have belonged to a Captian Williams. I think it was this ship that was being towed from the Tyne back to J. L. Thompsons, Sunderland for completion after engine installation, when a tow line snapped and a tug sank with the loss
"City of Manchester" surrounded by barges in, I think, Kidderpore Dock, Calcutta. Judging by the smoke rising from the barges luncheon is about to be served in the upper deck dining area and one of our stevedores appears to be ordering a take-away. Own ship was "Woodburn".
