Images on this site are arranged into rough areas by location as in my book 'Still Occupied', available on Blurb. Eventually this site will contain all the images in that book and more.
Hawthorn was a general cargo ship, gross tonnage 1197 tons, built by D.W.Kremer & Sohn GmbH & Co. in Elmshorn, Germany in 1967, and had various names and owners. She began as ORTRUD MÜLLER, and was then HUNNAU and FRANCINAPLEIN before coming to Liverpool owners in 1977 who named her HAWTHORN. In 1992 she became BLACKBIRD, and since then has been SMARAGD and GULF TRADER, and was last heard of as the LADY AGNES, registered in Kingstown (Saint Vincent and the Grenadines and not Hull), sailing under a Tanzanian flag and leaving Port-de-Paix in Haïti a few days ago.
My picture shows here moored in Alexandra Dock, Hull. The cranes are long gone too.
