Can anyone identify this ship please.
Could she be the Bellerophon 1950?

Not the Bellerophon (1950 vintage) somewhat earlier than that.......I'll get to the books before I pack up and leave on another jolly and see if I can get a more useful answer than that!

Regards

Allan

Thanks Allan. I posted both pics together. Bellerophon should have gone on the other one.

This is a 1920's Sarpedon class.
Blue Funnel's first serious attempt at a genuine passenger class vessel.

Agreed, It is 'Sarpedon' herself. I got the picture from a stall selling Blue Flue pictures at the Albert Dock museum.

Must have been the first attempt as the bridge is different. the Sarpedon, Patroclus, Antenor, Hector are identical.

Sorry I had to leave a little earlier than planned and didn't get back to the computer on Sunday. This could only have been either the Sarpedon or Patroclus. The latter two of the class didn't have the lifeboat on the bridge deck derrick house. Strange that the bridge doesn't have a monkey island in this painting. Beautiful ships though with room for 155 passengers and 80 crew.

Hope this makes sense.

Regards

Allan

Hi Allan. Thanks for the info. Did you notice, the two boats abeam of the funnel are lower than the aft two, which are level with the bridge deck boat. Six boats counting the one at the stern. I have a card of the TSS Nestor. 1913. Her life boats are exactly the same, one up, two down, two up, and one onn stern. The bridges and superstructure are slightly different.
