Hi Folks,


My grandfather was a ship's engineer around the turn of the 20th century right up to about 1930 I reckon. My cousin is currently going through some old photos and came across the one I have attached.



We have little information on himother than some half-remembered conversations with our Gran that he was mostly aborad, frequently in the Americas - both north and south - and quite possibly in the Valparaiso area a lot.



Can anyone shed any light on what the vessel might be? The original photo was called Dad's Ship and was stored by my uncle. It looks rather passenger/cruise based but I am very aware I am basing that on Death on the Nile rather than any sort of ship knowledge.


All assistance would be very helpful, even just what type of vessel it is. The photo isn't good enough to see the flags I suspect.


Many thanks
