Help needed. Can you tell us anything about this sailing ship?

Ada (1)

One of this blog’s followers, to whom I am probably related, would love to know more about this ship.

The picture hung in her grandparents’ house in Brynhenllan  for as long as anyone can remember but nobody in the family knows anything about it. Ada is not a family name so she assumes it really is the name of the ship. Her grandfather, from Dinas, came from a family of many mariners while many of the men in her grandmother’s family were trawlermen in the Aberdeen area.

The picture is not signed nor is there anything written on the back. Can you help us? Do you know anyone who can?

  1. Thanks so much. That’s a very useful link. I never thought that my comment on the trawlermen from Aberdeen would lead anywhere. There’s obviously more investigating to be done and you’ve set us off in the right direction. If we come across anything significant I’ll post an update. Maybe we should send a photo of the painting to the Aberdeen ships website.
