Shaw, Savill & Albion's 1952 Belfast built is seen passing Portishead, inbound for Avonmouth exactly fifty years ago, on 28th May 1969.

Later: CEDRIC finally arrived at Liverpool on 7.7.76 and was there sold, sailing as SEA CONDOR owned by Fife Shipping Limited of Panama, which in 1978 was the buyer of Houlder Brothers' SHAFTESBURY. As JAL SEA CONDOR she foundered in July 1978.

As SEA CONDOR, CEDRIC arrived at Kaohsiung on 20.9.76 for breaking.

To my eye, the SS&A 'C' Class are simply outstanding beauties! We could fill a large book with such beauties, but the C Class tick all of my boxes!

Stunning photo helps!

Totally agree!! A proper ship.

The accommodation on the boatdeck----was this for passengers?

LOL! NO! This accommodation on Boat Deck was for the engineers. The Ch. Engineer's suite was one deck higher... behind the funnel. Beautiful view over the wake. The mates were on Boat Deck below the bridge. Enough for Mate, 2/O, 2 x 3/o's and 6 cadets. The Master's suite was on Bridge Deck, adjacent to the wheelhouse.

The 'I' Class were similar. The funnel was a bit further aft and the Ch. Engineer's suite was forward of the funnel looking over No. 3 Hatch.

There is some doubt with your emphatic NO Stephen, remember that six Fridge men and Electricians lived there!!!?
The big difference between the 'C' and the 'I' were the main engines. Twin screws reduced to one with turbo charging.
