Colourful and lively.( And I will not believe you if you claim this one is reproduced in a colder hue than the original.) The feeling of depth is imposing, even though the backround is not taking much space away from the main object. I wish I could have seen it in full size.

Another great picture Stephen.

My father spent a month as her 4th officer from 26.6.1935 to 25.7.1935 and the following month as 4th officer on Nerissa, another Furness Bermuda Line ship.

Good morning Nick,

In the years 1931 -1935 Fort St George was out of Furness Bermuda Line. Well, not officially. She was then running under the Red Cross Line. Nerissa was a Red Cross Line vessel. These ships were running from New York to Halifax, Newfoundland. I believe the staff were Bermuda Furness Line people.

What other vessels did your father sail in?

Stephen
