Departing Tilbury Landing Stage, 1983.

Not an ocean liner, nor a modern cruise ship, so feel free to tell me if it's in the wrong category.

Fine were you have placed it. She served for many years on the Leningrad-Tilbury service of the Baltic State S.S.Co. Hit the headlines when she was used to transport Kruschev to the U.N. in New York during the Cuba crisis when he suffered a humiliating put down from Harold MacMillan.

Thanks Phil. I figured that was the most logical category, but I'm always open to suggestions :>)

Was familiar with the Baltica when it used to run into Surrey Docks in London in the late 50s

A Russian ship named Baltica traded into Surrey Docks with timber during the 1950s.
This ship was Vyacheslav Molotov until 1957 and then renamed Baltika.
On Leningrad - London service it was passengers off on the landing stage then into Tilbury Docks for cargo working.

Renamed when Molotov (the hammer) fell from grace as Kruschev cleared out the Stalinist old guard.
Phil, I think the UN put down over the shoe banging incident was a couple of years before the Cuban missile crisis in 1962. This was the beginning of his own fall from grace in 1964
