Very nice shot of Riga port Mike! MOSQUITO is not a common name so nice to see there was one in the republic of Letland.
I am sure it is not Smit's tug, but thanks for sharing anyway! I do like those old interesting pictures!!!

Great one, Mike. She is in the history of Wilson Line by John Harrower
1884, 61grt, 72 x 15.7 x 8.7 feet, iron hull, strengthened for navigation in ice
Earle's yard no. 270 for Thos. Wilson, Sons & Co 'for service at Riga'
Launched 28/03/1884, trials 03/05/1884, sailed from Hull for Riga 29/06/1884
There she was passed to ownership of Helmsing & Grimm ... no later history.
Said also to have been fitted with a patent steam fire engine which could throw 4 jets of water into the air or be used as a salvage pump.

Thanks George and Henk
The Info will be useful George if this winding house museum gets the lottery money they are chasing.
