Photographed by the late R.M.Parsons at her nominal home port of Avonmouth (i.e. Bristol), probably in April 1966,
TEXACO BRISTOL was a lengthened T2 tanker built at Chester, Pa. in 1944 as HUBBARTON, a name she
carried until 1948 when she entered the Texaco fleet as ALABAMA, then TEXACO ALABAMA in 1960. She was
lengthened by Blythswood D.D. in 1962 and given the name TEXACO BRISTOL, trading as such until arriving at
San Esteban de Pravia on 20.08.1976 to be broken up.
