George Race, c. 1899
Oil on board
The Grimsby trawler Dominican was built as one of five ships built for the Albion Steam Fishing Company in 1891. She was the sister ship of the Grimsby trawler Egyptian.
Dominican rescued the crew of the Swedish schooner Miranda in 1892. She was in collision with the Grimsby trawler Seti at the entrance to the fish docks in 1897. The ship also collided with the trawler Royallieu in 1902. She was sold to the Alan Steam Fishing Company in 1915.
Dominican went missing while fishing on 3 November 1915. The ship and her crew were never heard of again. It is presumed that she was sunk by a mine.
