Bringing in the catch. The «Barrowby» returning to the factory ship.

As far as I have been able to gather, «Barrowby» was built in 1912. According to J.S. Hodgson’s whaling memoirs, at the time of this photograph, this was Edvard Skontorp’s boat. Edvard was a legend among whaling gunners.

Any information on the vessel is most welcome.
