Vicente Suarez y Cía








Vicente Suarez - Collection  C. Kleiss
        This vessel had painted with very big letters Vicente Suarez on the forward quarter, so she seems clearly related with this owner. As I don't find any data about her, and having in mind the letter size not usual for a ship, maybe she was a kind of pontoon, could be for coal bunkering. All the fishing vessels were steamers, what indicates the photo time.
