Hi Ron,

The ALBION (O.N 29316) was a 900 gross ton ship, length 245.2ft x beam
29ft, iron hull, clipper bows. There was accommodation for 24-1st,
16-2nd and 365-steerage class passengers.
Launched by Martin Samuelson, Hull on speculation in Feb.1861, she was
sold to J.W.Day, Durham on 24th Jun.1861 and resold to Thos.Wilson,
Sons & Co, Hull on 17th Oct.1861. Re-engined in 1880, she was renamed
ALBANO and in Jan.1887 she lost her rudder 500 miles west of
Queenstown and was assisted into that port by Bristol City Line's
WELLS CITY by steaming ahead with the WELLS CITY steering her from
astern. In Nov.1896 she was sold to the Marine Association
(O.S.S.Piper, manager), Port Talbot and on 26th Sep.1897 was wrecked
in the Gulf of Bothnia near Kemi, Finland while on passage Trelleborg
to Neder Kalix in ballast. [Wilson Line by John Harrower]

Hi folks,

Thanks to all who helped me find the Ship Plato. Like my Swedish
Grandfather would say, "tack så mycket"!!!

I now need your help, once again, to find the ship Albion, listed

the destination Hull. Shipping agent: F.
