Hull Trawler Challenge
Can you help identify the people in these photographs? And when they were taken? And who took them?
These stunning photographs, discovered in a London auction in February 2009, tell a wonderful story of life on board two Hull fishing trawlers, the H1 SS Canada and H413 SS New Zealand in the early 1900s.
But the story is incomplete, and that’s where your help is needed
Whether you’re a historian, a genealogist, or just like a challenge, and no matter whether you are from Hull or have perhaps never even been there, the Hull Trawler Challenge aims to draw on the collective knowledge of people worldwide to help solve some of the mysteries behind these photographs.
