Great overview of the Port of Amsterdam probably taken sometime in the fifties or early sixties.

The unmistakable Nederland Line ORANJE is clearly visible and what looks like her running mate the JOHAN DE OLDENBARNEVELT to her left.

I can't identify the other vessels in view, I had initially thought that the two funneled white liner was Home Lines ITALIA but on closer inspection her funnels appear to be to short plus they are minus of any details for it to be Home Lines.

The photo has to be dated prior to 30 June 1962 as that was day of the final departure of the JOHAN DE OLDENBARNVELT from Amsterdam on her last round the world voyage for the Nederland Lines.

The JOHAN DE OLDENBARNVELT had completed her final round the world voyage arriving in Sydney Australia on the 03 February 1963, she was decommissioned by the Nederland Line on the same day and handed over to the Greek Line.

I'd be interested if anyone can clearly identify the other vessels and in particular the two funnel liner

Might the two funnel liner be the NIEUW HOLLAND (1928-1959)?

Good catch on the photos and clearly identifying the other vessels, it's appreciated.

We and we can clearly state then going from the additional information that it was taken prior to 1959.

It's a great photo that's created some interesting discussion.

Regards

Sean
