“The Wreck of the Annie Roberts”


Annie Roberts leaves Sydney, Nova Scotia for Lamaline, Newfoundland in a gale with a cargo of coal. The steamer Risenor crashes into the Annie and can only rescue one man.


[Lehr/Best date this wreck to] October 22, 1913. Northern Shipwrecks Database places the collision in Sydney Harbour, makes the collision with SS Wabana, and estimates five lost.

I find no other reference to "a steamer Risenor" anywhere. - BS
