Thanks Tony, I'll dive/delve into it today.

OK, I must be doing something wrong. I clicked the file you provided, and got the tutorial on how to use the database, but I don't find the actual database.

I see nothing unreasonable in these forum rules.

Hi Tony
That is quite impressive, although I haven't been able to open the Napier file, only the navigation info, which hasn't been "clickable" for me, but I'll fiddle with it when I have more time.
Yes, the Columbia River traffic has been a lot to wade through, I have more information on the Port of Astoria traffic, which is were I grew up and had access to their files. By luck, the Walter Frost (Vancouver BC) photo trove is mostly of the same ships that called here, so I have a lot of visual reference available.

Although I've been here for a while and have only on occasion participated, I've been quite interested in ship traffic since I was a kid in the 1960s. Being that this is a community of ship spotters, I thought there would be more information on past decades ship traffic here or elsewhere on the internet. Would there be interest in such a department here? I've been collating such information on Columbia River traffic since 1967, it's a laborious process (I'm still working, too) and I'm nearly done with 1970. I will be saving this information with our local maritime museum, but I am also happy to share it here. Maybe somebody has been doing the same in their locale? Maybe somebody has a library of Lloyds Lists? Would this be manageable for the admins here?
