photographs/information sought

Postby Sheilah » Mon Jul 14, 2014 2:53 pm


I am currently researching a ship which sank in 1908, it was originally registered in Hull to James Needler of Hessle Road in Hull. Does anyone know if any photographs exist of Mr Needler's vessels, in particular a dandy rigged ketch called 'Autumn'.

Due to been a Dandy rigged vessel I would think she was sold out of Hull prior to 1908 or was in the coasting trade, there remains very few photographs of Hull sailing vessels associated with the fishing industry due to the destruction of photographs and records during the war.
