I remember in the mid to late 1950s Port Adelaide had a new and then modern tugboat named "Tuska". Do you have any information about it or where it is now?

I am a member of the SA Pioneers association by virtue of my descendancy from Samuel Germein. I thought it might be of value to also join the Port Adelaide historical society but see (by searching your website) that you appear to have nothing in relation to Samuel - or, indeed, any of the whole Germein family. Am I correct?

I am trying to find out information about my great grandfather John William Walker and his daughter Alma Jean Walker. Alma married William R H Sowden and his occupation is listed as Greengrocer. I have a photo of what I believe was my Auntie Alma's shop but not sure the address. My great grandfather John William Walker was also a greengrocer and I think the business was handed over to my Auntie Alma and her husband. I can scan and email the photo I have of the shop if you like as it might help with the location. One address that comes up is 92 Commercial Road Port Adelaide. I remember going to the shop when I was little. I remember it was on a corner and there was a house attached to it.
