A Wessel Real Photo Series photographic postcard of the s.s. Dorothea aground on Chesil Beach. Postally used in 1914 in Portland Harbour. Lovely clean condition, minimal corner wear, light postmark imprint to front. The Dorothea grounded on Chesil Beach on 14th Feb 1914, whilst on a voyage from Marbella to Rotterdam with a cargo of iron ore. Refloated she was sold and became the Ignis of the Gas Light & Coke Co, UK. Sunk by mine in 1917. (VG+)
