Ramna

Ramna

The boat is on land DS / Hvb Ramna, LH366. built 1908 Akers Mek. in Oslo. Caught around New Island 1909-11.
Steamship out in the bay is Coronda (1) (in a book by Ian Hart this ship is referred to as Starlight, but I find no cover for this is the same ship. Coronda (1) started its life as Sleeve). Purchased by Salvesen 1908.
The tall ship is Glengowan. This was purchased as scrap of Salvesen 1909 and towed to New Island for use as coal store. Later it was built a bridge out to the stern of Glengowan so that one could drive on and off the ship with small mining carriages (look here). I 1916 ceased all operations on New Island and Glengowan were left.
