The best algerian wines were send in wood barrels, onthe decks.
You can find a picture of one sister ship on this site, the Tlemcen IMO5362623. The author, Hans Pedersen, has published in the eighties a little booklet on the story of the company "Les Cargos algériens", for the society of the ex sailors.

As registers class her as a wine tanker, how much wine was she actually able to carry and how much general cargo?
