Where does this picture go in the "category quicklist", since it was built in 1936, and the categories begin with ships built 1940 - 1949?

Best picture I've seen of one of the Doxford "economy" ships. Built just as the world was emerging from the depths of the great depression, there was high demand for something affordable, both by individuals who wanted to enter the shipping business, as well as the established companies.
