THE QUEVILLY IN DIEPPE, FRANCE ARRIVING FROM THE USA AROUND 1905

The Quevilly was the late nineteenth century equivalent of the modern giant oil tanker. A steel-hulled four master, she carried some 3,400 tonnes of crude oil in barrels from Philadelphia to an important oil refinery at Dieppe. Much of the rest of the picture is still recognisable in Dieppe today.
