Seen loading scrap metal at Shieldhall, the Dutch coaster ANTJE K. is no stranger to the Clyde, having also been seen a few months ago on an earlier visit. She appears to be remaining fully employed while some other coastal ships are suffering from general downturns in trade, and Alstership, her managers, appear to have negotiated a number of recent contracts for her to carry scrap, as usual for the Spanish and Portuguese smelters. A few hours after this picture was taken, ANTJE K. sailed for Seville.
