Can anyone help locate a photograph of the Rowland & Marwood steam ship BURNHOLM built in 1904 by J L Thompson Sunderland. She was sold in 1924 to Watts & Watts Steam Ship Co. and renamed MEDMENHAM and finally scrapped in Scotland in 1933. Rowland & Marwood were of course a Whitby based shipping company and it appears that local men served on her and although I do not know if she ever visited Whitby there may be family photographs of this vessel held by Whitby people.
