Joan, that’s great information. I hope Steve sees it.

I did some digging and found some more info.

The Hull Museums Collection apparently has two negatives of a vessel called Superman. If it’s the 1923 ST Superman, they have two images:

1. The Superman leading the Dunedin Star (a steam ship) – glass negative

2. The Superman (in addition to pictures of other boats and the Hull dock) – 35mm negative

It may be possible to get copies, Steve. You can look up the accession numbers and availability on their site.

Good luck.

P.S., I believe ST stands for “steam tug” but I’m not 100% sure since some naval acronyms mean more than one thing (e.g., “SS” has a variety of meanings, depending upon context and whether it’s commercial, military, British or American).
