Dear Sir.
This ships, was later the RIO DELTA, then the CARMENCHU (new steam engine in 1918) then FREIXAS 2 (I have a photo that can send to you) and the BILBAINO. Scrapped in Bilbao in 1932/1934.
I want to have, if possible, a photo of this watercoulou in high resolution. It is possible to purchaser or receive it?
It is to complete an article in http://vidamaritima.com
If you are interested I can summit the photo of FREIXAS II

My late husband's grandfather ran away to sea as a young boy , and was " adopted" by a Breton fishing crew and sent to the French Naval training school at Brest. He became in time a Master Mariner , and the barque Delta was the first ship he captained . He went around Cape Horn many times, was ship wrecked twice , once off the Falkland Islands
