Hello Bolton,

I realize that it is just pictures you are seeking, but you are unlikely to get those until you have done more research on the vessel. You need to give more information to "help the helpers".

Are you sure that CAPTAIN DAN was built Norway and not Pictou, Nova Scotia, Canada? It's an uncommon name for a vessel, so I wouldn't expect there to be more than one afloat concurrently.

What is CAPTAIN DAN's Official Number? Is it 55570?

What year was this voyage Liverpool ---> Pensacola?

Here are some bits to get you started:
 1)  1880 Mercantile Navy List listing for her
       ww.crewlist.org.uk/data/viewimages.php?regtype=MNL&year=1880&name=CAPTAIN%20DAN&page=206&imagesource=CLIP images

 2)   List of years of extant crew agreements (of which copies can be bought) at Maritime History Archive, Newfoundland, Canada. Crew lists give a wealth of information regarding daily life. Also, usually handwriting specimens.

 3) Crew list for 1874 is at The National Archives, Kew, England in file BT 99/1021.

 4) Her build details.

Dear Friends ..... This may be my last Walk For Guide Dogs. Paraplegia I have coped with, but age, E. coli infections and the subsequent kidney disease impede me now. I'm not sure that I can walk the full 5K distance on my own front legs this year, but I'm going to try because, you see, I know how important guide dogs are. My first adoptive Mum was nearly blind from macular degeneration when she chose me. She could see me only in her remaining peripheral vision, so I learned never to stand in fr

As this is definitely the ship we are looking for I wonder if anyone knows if there would be a photo and were about should I look if there is. Thanks

Hi Bolton,

Your last 4 posts have been quoted text from further up the thread, I think that you maybe clicking the "quote" button instead of the reply button  ??? To reply to a topic you need to scroll down to the last response and here you will find the blue "reply" button you click on this to open up a box for you to type your reply. I hope that this helps you.

Sarah :)
