Thanks very much for your comment. There were two vessels named SS Glanhafren. We have some information on the vessel in this painting that we can send you, and this may be of help. Please use the link in the About this Catalogue section on the Images of Industry homepage to contact us by email and we will forward it to you.

I have a painting of a SS Glanharen. I assume this is the vessel referred to above, but I would like confirmation.

The vessel in my painting has two masts with sails as well as one funnel.

Can you please advise
