Andes

Andes

Royal Mail Lines' Andes.
Pic is dated 1941 but surprisingly not in wartime colours.
Anyone recognise the location?

In case you missed it, but there are quite a number of pictures of this vessel in the Gallery -- just go to the search engine - type Andes ----and voila....

Also main page, in the search engine, you find a variety of stories on this vessel.

Regarding the location - surely that is Lyttelton Harbour with Quail Island beyond her stern and the tug "Lyttelton II" ahead. The light beacon just to the left of the two women is on Shag Reef and they are standing on the rocks that lined the seaward side of Gladstone Pier before Cashin Quay was built. "Andes"sailed Lyttelton May 1940 still in peacetime colours, not sure if she returned in 1941.

Dave,
Thanks for the information on Lyttleton Harbour. Just come upon my late uncle's log for period 8th December 1939 when Andes sailed from Liverpool until FWE in Liverpool 12th May 1942; his log shows Andes in Lyttleton from 12th April to 2nd May 1940. She wasn't there in 1941.
Regards,
Alex

Sempre desejei saber qual o destino final do "ANDES" e do "ALCÂNTARA" (?) Ambos viajaram bastante para a América do Sul. O primeiro após a Segunda Guerra e o segundo, com duas chaminés, antes da 2ª Guerra e, com uma chaminé, após a referida guerra.
Atenciosamente.
