The ship is wearing the funnel livery and the house-flag of the Inch Shipping Co. of Liverpool. Flying from the peak of her main-gaff are the four flags of the Commercial Code of Signals T. G. W. C., which identify this vessel as the iron steamship ‘Inchmaree’ of 1,975 gross registered tonnage. She was built at Low Walker on the Tyne in 1880 and registered in Liverpool in that same year, the first of two successive ships of that name to be owned by Inch Shipping.
