TL Devlin's Steam Trawler, 'Daily Chronicle'
Reproduced with acknowledgement to Buccleuch Estates and to
Thomas L Devlin's Trawlers
owner, T L Devlin, had a fleet of trawlers that sailed from Granton Harbour.
Here is one of them.
Thank you to John D Stevenson, Edinburgh, for
"Devlin trawlers had yellow funnels
(black at the top)
with large blue 'D' painted on them."

Granton & Leith Trawlers
"I have for many years worked on a
database recording the funnel markings of trawler owners through out the UK.
With the help of many subscribers, it now amounts to over 2000 owners'
Could I enlist the help of your
site and ask if regular users of the site could forward any knowledge they
have of the funnel markings for trawler owners based at Granton or
elsewhere in the Firth of Forth?"

I spoke to John Stevenson,
Edinburgh, yesterday. He has been a regular contributor to the
EdinPhoto web site on Granton and Leith shipping topics.
He told me that both he and Andy
Hall, Newcastle upon Tyne, provided all the information they had relating to
funnel markings to Bill Blow some time ago.
Perhaps somebody else with will
email me now with more info on this topic.
