The subject of this weeks Friday Photo (kindly sent in by Ian Davies) is a shipwrecked boat called the MV Red Hand.
I’m presuming the Red Hand is the one on it’s side as the other boat in the picture is named the Adventure. I wonder how they both became to next to one another.
The MV (Motor Vessel) Red Hand was a British cargo ship, built in 1914. It was owned by J Summer & Sons who I gather were a major iron and steel producer, based around the coastline at Shotton, Flintshire. According the wrecksite database the ship ran aground and capsized on East Hoyle Bank on the 17th October 1927.
The above photo was used on a postcard. Now I don’t know if the recipient collected postcards, but I don’t think it was one off as you can see here:
