  1. The HM built in 1864 was at Dumbarton not Dundee. Check the LR again

    1. RE: the 'Hamilla Mitchell' built in 1864. Thanks for pointing out that error. The misattribution is apparently given in a quote from 'The Illustrated London News' (September 25th 1869). If you click the link in the post it'll show you my source for that quote. I've found the listing on the Lloyd's Register for 1869 and I've updated the post, adding a note and a link to the relevant page of the LR.

  3. I'm interested in the black and white photo you have posted of the north end of the Bund showing the public gardens. Do you happen to know when it was taken? Maureen

    1. I think it is from Life Magazine, maybe late 1940s. Apologies. The original source link for that image seems to have disappeared, however, there are a couple of very similar shots here (if you copy and paste this link into your browser):

  4. Hi.

    Is it possible to get permission to use the image of the front page of the newspaper that says: "Japanese Surrender..."?

    Is this in the public domain or how were you able to use it?

    I am designing a book for a gentleman who, as a boy, remembers the end of the war and neighbors waving this newspaper around.

    And is there a chance you might have a hi-resolution image for this?

    This book will not be sold. It will only be given to family and friends.

    Thanks for whatever guidance you can give.

    Robin

    1. Hello Robin,

      The image was in the public domain when I posted it, but now clicking on the image no longer links the photo to its original source (as seems to be happening to many of the images I've used here on Waymarks!), so I'm guessing its been taken down. I usually source images that aren't mine through WikiCommons, but I can't recall if this is where I found that particular old newspaper image. A quick google search has it showing up on a couple of YouTube channels, plus here:

      I'm afraid the image I posted here on Waymarks is the highest resolution copy I have. Sorry I can't be more helpful.

      Best wishes, Tim
