Peter der Grosse in Dundee Harbour

£8.25

"Peter der Grosse" in Dundee Harbour - Ref: WC0886

"Peter der Grosse" was an iron screw steamer, built at Kiel in 1872 for the Russian St Peterburger Dampfschifffahrtgesellschaft. She had a gross tonnage of 846 and measured 199 feet in length.

This photograph by the Dundee-based Alexander Wilson shows the "Peter der Grosse" in the Earl Grey Dock, alongside the twenty ton steam crane, which was possibly used to discharge the cargo of flax brought from Reval on two occasions in 1891.

Crona in Dundee Docks

£8.25

"Crona" in Dundee Docks - Ref: WC 0803

It appears that the original caption for this Alexander Wilson photograph is inaccurate and the vessel in question was the "Croma".

She was built by J. L. Thompson and Co., of Sutherland, in 1883 from Croma Ship Co., Ltd., managed by Dent and Co., of Newcastle-upon-Tyne.

With a gross tonnage of 3187, she was one of the larger ships to visit the port of Dundee, and she was 330.3 feet in length. No record has thus far been found for such a visit.
