I wonder if any readers could supply further information on this vessel as shown in the picture.
She is the SS Yorkshire captained by Captain Rathbone, my great grandfather. Who were her owners?
Where does the painting depict? What is the significance of the signal flags? Who was the artist?
Some years ago, I saw a similar painting in a book entitled The British Merchant Navy. The book was a series of twelve and could not be purchased individually, but I wondered if it was a standard set of paintings for a company boardroom.
