Great pic that Joe. It shows how busy the port was back in the day and how the ships were dual role cargo and fare paying passengers. :D Ken

The third and final HMS Conway.

In 1876 when the second HMS Conway proved too small to accommodate the growing number of cadets, this was replaced by HMS Nile. Also renamed HMS Conway, she remained in the Mersey until 1941, when she was moved to the Menai Straits to avoid the Blitz.
By 1949 with cadet numbers rising, conditions on board were very cramped, so the Captain Superintendent reached an agreement with the Marquis of Anglesey to use part of his mansion, Plas Newydd, Anglesey, for dormitories, school rooms, a sports fields and a private dock.
Whilst being returned to the Mersey for a refit in 1953, the last HMS Conway training ship was grounded near the Menai Suspension Bridge and broke her back. Three years later she caught fire and had to be broken up.

You’re right she was a Harrison Line Ken. In1958 she collided with the dredger Mersey No27, in the Mersey after that she was sold to Tricia Shipping Co, of Nicosia 1970, and renamed Cleopatra. :wink:

You know Joe, that name rings a bell.
I’m sure she was involved in Baltic trade and would bring us wood from Finland to the Bramley Moore.
It was so long ago but I spent time in my apprenticeship in shipping, Customs and dock clearance so it triggered a memory.

The HILARY was launched on 17th April 1931 and was completed by August of that year. She sailed on her maiden voyage from Liverpool to Para and Manaus on 14th August. The new HILARY could easily be recognised by her distinctive three-note triple-chime steam whistle.

First-class single-berth rooms were on the promenade deck; double and three-berth cabins on the upper deck, and there were four de-luxe staterooms with private bath and toilet. The third-class passengers were accommodated in two and four-berth cabins on the main deck, in compliance with Portuguese emigrant ship requirements.
