City of Durban, bait time

City of Durban 1964, lunch time. Wonder what the company accountants would have thought!

Lovely shot, that. What sea travel was all about- as a passenger that is!
Sampled CITY OF PORT ELIZABETH many moons ago, only a coastal voyage alas but superb nevertheless.

The food on the later City of Durban was also superb, even for Cadets! Although one of the passengers did complain constantly....

That thing sitting aft of the Scotch Eggs, and outboard of the Glazed Ham on its cake stand … is it really an uncooked, un-plucked pheasant ?

Even if it is two uncooked halves with a cooked bit in the middle, it still looks an "unfortunate" thing to have on the table... (Jester)

Tonga,

Maybe they reserved that "unfortunate" bird for the complaining passenger -

"Oh! you can be the pheasant plucker!",
"My man, I'll have you know that I work in the City!",
"Ahh! So you're a complete BANKER!"

Boom Boom!

A great photo of days gone by--Public Health regs certainly wouldn't allow food outside like that, unchilled or unheated, these days!
