Caption Oil tanker, British Grenadier, at unloading jetty, Grangemouth
Date photo taken 23 Feb 1923
Brief Description View of the oil tanker discharging oil at the jetty. The tanker has its engines astern and an island bridge structure. Its paintwork appears to be in poor condition. A large flexible pipe can be seen passing over her side to the aft cargo tanks.
Photographer or Artist Unknown
Subject Notes The jetty has been built out from the quay wall, perhaps to take advantage of deeper water or for safety reasons. The British Grenadier had in an earlier voyage been the first tanker to unload oil at the jetty.
