Misidentified vessel

Postby Dennis Maccoy » Tue Oct 13, 2020 12:32 pm

I took this picture in Hull docks in May 1965 during a visit by the Tyneside branch of WSS and my photo album identifies the ship as Baltic Venture. However….. this is clearly not the Baltic Venture completed by Droxford’s in 1965, and searching LR, Miramar, Equasis and Ian Allan gets me no further. I must have recorded the name wrongly but, since my note books covering that period have long since vanished, I can’t get back to the original record. Can anyone help?

Thanks Patrick - they're all good potential matches. Ironically I photographed Baltic Importer at Newcastle the next year, but the view doesn't greatly help identification:

Or it could be BALTIC TRADER. There were four. Importer, yard no 563 (1953), Exporter, yard no 564 (1953), Merchant, yard no 565 (1954) and Trader, yard no 566 (1954).

Tardis Required. :idea: :idea:

Surprised to see her on 23 Shed South, maybe this was around the time that 1/2 Sheds were being re-built and became the base for the Finnish trade.
Now, the cranes have gone, the shed has gone, the quay has gone and the water has gone .... such is progress.

Quite often used as a Lay-by berth. I cannot recall seeing Cargo Worked there. Used to be down there every lunchtime when I went to school in Newcastle. Spam in a bun and a mug of tea..........
