I enclose a composite photo of a relevant portion of seven vessels built by the same shipyard at around the same time. The quiz question is to identify the builder. Identification of each of the seven vessels might be a little harder.

No. I'll give clues if this proves too difficult. But I think at least 2-3 of the people on Ships Nostalgia will get it easily. If so then we'll go down to identifying the actual vessels before I post a pot-pourri of all 7.

BARTRAM & SONS Sunderland builder ,the second in the high right is the LONDONER.
Everything correct so far! "Montcalm" however is really La Falda. I think she was laid down as Montcalm but never sailed as such. Can't remember what she was launched as.

Now - what about the other 4 vessels?

I know beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but I should have added that in my view this house style made these vessels (especially those built 57-59) the best looking general cargo vessels ever built. If someone out there has a photo of the similar SILVERBECK I'd be delighted to see it. So that eliminates one vessel from the rest of the quiz.

The two grey on the left side perhaps are FILLEIGH-1957 and LANDWADE 1961,correct LA FALDA built As MONTCALM. 1958. and the black possible is SILVERBECK.
Gp

Correct for the two Tatems. Filleigh is the 2nd left vessel and Landwade the bottom left. Silverbeck is not amongst them. I'm looking for a good photo of her.

That's 2 to go. Like the other 5, both these are also nominal British "tramps" (as opposed to cargo liners). The top left vessel has a two-worded name and the remaining one just one word. Both are named in the traditional style of their owners.

Go to www. merchant-navy.com enter vessels name in Google Search and comes up with a website where a photo of this ship is posted. I cannot print website here as it has a bad word in context and appears as asterix

Wow. Not sure if it is Solent Waters (Gallery of Old Ships) you are referring to but - BOY - what a gold mine. I'll spend weeks trawling through that.

Thats the site but if you take the last letter in Solent (t) then the first 3 in Waters(wat) put them all together and thats the reason it would not let me print out the website
