In port for less than a day, the British tramp Warkworth is at Birkenhead "G" Berth, Port Adelaide on Monday 14 April 1969.She is probably cleaning out her holds and provisioning prior to loading barley at Ardrossan, across St. Vincent Gulf from Adelaide.The Wallaroo Mt. Lyell Coy's Fertiliser works in the background are long gone.
Built by Bartram's at South Dock, Middlesborough in 1962, her owners were the Watergate Steam Ship Company [R.S.Dalgliesh; managers - hence her funnel colours].
She was sold within the year and renamed Salamat, then subsequently Philippa in 1974 and Skymnos the same year. Sadly shelled at Fao on 9 January 1981 and left derelict.
See Paul Strathdee's pic of Skymnos at Glasgow in 1975.

Your excellent photographs are bringing back some wonderful memories Bob. Dalgliesh did'nt often come out of the Atlantic and for years always tried to get the first ship into Montreal when the St. Lawrence was reckoned to be "open water" after the winter .The Master of the first ship in was always awared a silver topped cane . Became something of a race between the regular traders into the St. Lawrence. I think the "WARKWORTH" was one of their last tweendeckers as they went into craned bulkers in a big way and the tragic death of Dalgliesh himself brought a sad end to a good old British tramp company.
