It should read "Grangemouth". She is leaving the port having arrived from Bremen three days previously.

Where is "Gravenhurst" located, I can't find it anywhere, it looks like a lock!

Good evening from Hamburg, I can confirm that she was built at Elmshorn as "Ortrud Müller", have seen her many times prior to delivery (as pupil) and afterward had the honor to act as waterclerk for her, while being trained as shipping agent at Otto A. Müller Hamburg ;)
Tschüss and all the best
