Sumby Collection

The images below are shared with us by Chrissy Sumby, whose grandfather B. T. R. Greensill owned the Wanderer in Nelson during the 1930s and 1940s. Wanderer was built in Auckland at the Logan yard to the order of the Moore brothers of Nelson and launched 17 October 1905.

She is now believed to be resident of the Bay of Islands.
