OBUASI arriving Avonmouth 18.7.71 Malcolm Cranfield.jpg

On Sunday 18th July 1971, exactly fifty years ago today, two Elder Dempster Lines' sister ships - OBUASI and OWERRI - arrived at Avonmouth from West Africa on the same tide.

This photograph of OBUASI was taken from the north pier as she approached Avonmouth, stemming the incoming tide.
