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 do***ents 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

General Enquiries - 01482 300 300

Good luck

Thank you Howard! (Thumb)
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.

This Really Is Ships' Nostaligia

Found these 2 photos on the net ......any use to you ???
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.

Backsplice - thanks Mister! This one is a bit better than the image posted on http://www.tynebuiltships.co.uk/M-Ships/marengo1910.html ,... but I'm afraid that the quality and resolution are still insufficient.

In the meantime, I already emailed to the Hull Maritime Museum (as part of Hull Culture & Leisure), but 7 days later, there is still no response from them, unfortunately. Neither positive, nor negative, nothing.
