Does anyone know where I could find a photo of this ship, or is there one that is very similar?

SS Marsden Wilson Line

My ancestors took this ship from Norway around 1887.

See for an aerial photo of the smaller S.S. Meigle attempting to tug S.S. Marsden (sometimes referred to as S/S Marsdin) off the rocks in The Narrows of St. Johns, Newfoundland. Renamed Livorno in 1889. In 1907 the Livorno was stranded at Walsörarne (Walsorarne, Walsoerarne, etc.) an island of Finland - scrapped. See for exact location.
