Comments:

An excellent and very sharp photograph. This postcard was sourced from New York. It was posted from Grimsby to Brooklyn, New York in 1908.

FV Crux (GY106) was built by Mackie & Thomson & Co. of Glasgow in 1906. She was owned by Grimsby & North Sea Steam Trawling Co. - John R. Mackrill, Grimsby.

In 1912 the Crux was lost when she ran aground near Withernsea in a gale. One man lost his life.
