Sailing ship was a real sweetie.
This picture dates back to June 9, 1936, and shows the famous
four-masted Swedish barque, Abraham Rydberg, arriving in Blyth for
repairs to her main topmast, damaged in a collision with a steamer in
the English Channel. She was a full-rigged steel ship built in 1912 in
Stockholm to be used on the sugar trade from Honolulu to South America.
She was laid up in Baltimore in the United States during the Second
World War and scrapped at La Spezia, in Italy, in February,1957.
