Photographer's Note

They call it Greek Ship. But it is no longer Greek. She is resting in the Kish Island beaches for the last half a century ever since 1966. She was Greek for only two years before resting ashore. Is it still Greek, or rather Persian settler of the Persian Gulf?
The Greek Ship is in fact the nickname of a cargo steamship, Khoula F, that has been beached on the southwest coast of Kish Island, Persian Gulf, Iran, since 1966. She was in fact built in Britain by William Hamilton and Company in Port Glasgow, Scotland, who launched her on 9 March 1943 as Empire Trumpet and completed her in April 1943. From 1946 to 1966 she passed through a series of British and Iranian owners and various changes of name. Her final owners were Greek, and it is from them that she derives her nickname.
